One In Four Employees Don't Trust Their Bosses
Authored by Donna Meredith
Do you trust your boss?
It seems that many employees don’t and more are joining them each year.
A quarter say they trust their boss less this year than they did last year, according to the 6th annual Building Workplace Trust survey of 500 people commissioned by Interaction Associates, a workplace performance improvement firm.
The survey, which looks at the impact of leadership, trust, and collaboration on business performance and results, also found only 45% agree with the statement “my organisation has effective leadership”.
Interaction Associates' 6th annual research study tracking trust on the job, Building Workplace Trust, is out, and more than half of employees surveyed give their organizations low marks for trust and leadership. Yet this year’s findings again point to how high trust leads to better outcomes and financial results – and even boosts innovation.
