One in three would sack their manager
Survey points to growing dissatisfaction
A third of employees are unhappy with their manager and would change them if
they could, according to research by Investors in People
The research found that bosses who take an interest in their employees’
careers and who delegate tasks effectively are the most popular amongst staff,
while those with poor communication skills and who claim credit for someone
else’s work were the lease popular.
Long-term staff were less happy with their bosses than new joiners, the
survey suggested, while employees in bigger firms were more likely to want to
swap their manager than those in small companies.
‘The fact that almost a third of employees would like a new manager should
make bosses sit up and take notice,’ Ruth Spellman, chief executive of Investors
in People, said.
