Bad Bosses Drive Away Employees

The vast majority of employees want to make good money, have good benefits, and a positive work environment. Don't think that - just because you have good pay and benefits - that everyone will be happy. This survey out of Florida State University shows just how many employees despise their boss (and for good reasons!)
  • 39% of employees said their supervisor failed to keep promises;
  • 37% said their supervisor failed to give credit when due;
  • 31% said their supervisor gave them the silent treatment'
  • 27% said their supervisor made negative comments about them to others;
  • 23% said their supervisors blamed others to cover up their mistakes.

Yikes. Have you conducted a 180 degree survey lately? It may be time!
