Do you sometimes wonder whether your boss has any clue about what you do at the office each day? Well, it turns out you're not alone.
A new survey finds that about one in three employees are convinced their managers have no idea about what they do at the office, with 41% confident their boss wouldn’t be able to complete a day’s work in their shoes. What’s more, one third of workers believe their boss is grossly overpaid for their job.
While nobody expects a boss and employee to be best friends, it sounds like bosses could be doing more to at least develop a decent relationship with their workers. A fifth of employees say they wouldn’t describe their boss as understanding or empathetic, with a quarter saying the boss isn’t concerned for their well-being or happiness on the job. What’s more, 17% believe their boss is clueless about their feelings, with a fifth saying they’ve heard their manager say negative things about colleagues.
But not everyone looks poorly on their supervisor. In fact, 30% of employees say they get along with their boss, although only in a professional environment, while a third say they get along both personally and professionally with them. I love my boss......especially on pay day!
