Employees rate bosses poorly

US - Nearly one-third (31 percent) of employees say they can do their bosses jobs better. In addition, 60 percent say their bosses wouldnt be able to do their work.

In a recent survey conducted by CareerBuilder among 4,400 employees in the United States, respondents say they find their relationship with their boss challenging due to a lack of focus on career development, feedback and support.


Two-thirds feel their boss is doing a poor job grooming them for promotion, and an additional 45 percent say their boss does not provide regular and consistent feedback.

However, 72 percent agree that their boss provides them with offering work-place flexibility. Another 69 percent say their bosses listen to their ideas and concerns well.Having survived the recession, Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder says it is now crucial that workers and bosses maintain a strong and communicative relationship. "As many companies recover from the challenges of the last 18 months, both parties need to listen to each other and be flexible, with a common goal of moving the organisation forward."
