I am a new manager and I have an employee in my department, that use to run the department however they where not let go, but instead given a lower role. So, here is my dilemma I want to help this employee, they feel less motivated in a way. There was a previous manager before me, and they let this person do what they wanted. Now that I am manager, I want the person to not feel that their career is halted. They make more money then most in this department, but I do not see the excitement or hunger that they use to have.
In both company and employee it makes sense to me to help.
One idea I had was to make a new role for them at the company, but this I will need to persuade my bosses as well.
What information can you direct my towards to help me to help them.
