Washington: A new study has found that only 40 percent of employees have a high level of trust in their individual bosses, or in their organization as a whole.
According to a new study from Interaction Associates, employees have much more trust in their co-workers than they do in their supervisors, Mashable reported.
The study found that 54 percent of workers feel safe communicating their ideas and opinions to colleagues and peers, compared with 38 percent who feel the same about their company's leaders.
The study revealed that companies that have a high level of trust among their employees are 2.5 times more likely than those that don't to be leaders in revenue growth. In addition, businesses that lead in trust significantly outperform all other organizations in achieving key business goals, including customer loyalty and retention; competitive market position; ethical behavior and actions; predictable business and financial results; and profit growth.
The research also discovered that 80 percent of employees believe high levels of trust inside an organization foster both innovation and investment in new projects.
