Employees Give Their Bosses a Passing Grade

HTrends

Employers worldwide have received a mixed report card, with less than half of all survey respondents saying that their bosses have done a good job in preparing them for future success, according to the latest survey results from Kelly Services® (NASDAQ: KELYA) (NASDAQ: KELYB).

The findings are part of a new report, The Evolving Workforce: Effective Employers, based on the findings of the , which obtained the views of approximately 97,000 people in 30 countries.

Asked to rate their bosses, employees have delivered a passing grade for their performance, with an average score of 6.4 out of 10. Only 37 percent of respondents say that their bosses have done a good job in preparing them for future success. A total of 45 percent say they have not been well-prepared, and 17 percent are uncertain.

Nearly half of all those surveyed would be willing to recommend their current employer to a friend or acquaintance.

Results of the survey, globally, show:

    • Both Gen Y (aged 18-29) and Gen X (aged 30-47) agree that Gen X make the best leaders, but baby boomers (aged 48-65) strongly believe that their own generation are the superior business managers.
    • The most important quality in a good boss is leadership style nominated by 26 percent, slightly ahead of vision and clear direction (24 percent), and communication style (19 percent).
    • Almost half of respondents describe their organization’s leadership culture as either “empowering” or “inclusive.” A total of 31 percent describe it as “authoritative” or “oppressive.”
    • Slightly less than half (44 percent) say that their efforts at work are recognized and rewarded.
    • Among those respondents who say they feel rewarded and recognized for their work, more than two thirds (67 percent) say this takes the form of being “noticed by management,” while 17 percent receive bonuses or incentives, and 12 percent are acknowledged through formal programs.
