Suppose, there is a project which has been successfully completed by a group of people (including seniors, juniors and labour class). we want to appreciate not only the people at management level, but also those who actually worked hard and implemented the tasks allocated by the management team to achieve those results. what is the one word / phrase for such people, who implemented those tasks.

  • Are you saying that the top level managers didn't actually work towards that achievement? – NVZ Jun 18 '17 at 2:35
  • Goal-oriented, determined, focused etc. Look for synonyms. – NVZ Jun 18 '17 at 2:37
  • hi NVZ, thanks for above. Here the issue is not that who worked and who did not work. its about the appreciation which is normally given only to the top level managers. And the the real implementers are forgotten. i'm not sure whether the term "implementers" is correct for them or not? – LASHAGAL Jun 18 '17 at 2:48

    It is late in my time zone, and all I can think of is "worker bees" which you absolutely should NOT use. – ab2 ReinstateMonicaNow Jun 18 '17 at 4:18

    I would call them, simply "the people who did the work". – WS2 Jun 18 '17 at 4:58
