What is the normal or regular number of employees that should be under the supervision of a supervisor?


There is no exact number that can be applied in all cases. In practice, 15 to 20 is the number most quoted that one person can effectively supervise. You can increase that number by 50% or more through the use of working leads vs supervisors.
