54pc of employees feel their bosses don't respect them
A new study has found that 54 percent of employees don\'t feel respected by their bosses in their workplace.
Washington: A new study has found that 54 percent of employees don't feel respected by their bosses in their workplace.
The recent Harvard Business Review survey, which looked at people across a wide range of industries and at a variety of levels, also found that this problem isn't unique to one industry, the CBS News reported.
The study showed that respondents who felt that their bosses respected them were far better off than their disrespected colleagues because those that get respect reported 56 percent better health and well-being, 1.72 times more trust and safety, 89 percent greater enjoyment and satisfaction with their jobs, 92 percent greater focus and prioritization, and 1.26 times more meaning and significance.
Those that feel respected by their leaders were also 1.1 times more likely to stay with their organizations than those that didn't, suggesting that a little bit of respect from the boss could increase benefits for employees dramatically without having to spend on "wellness programs" and doing "team building exercises."
In order to show respect to the employees, which allows bosses to avoid bad press in the first place, employers should remember that the employees are human.
Secondly, the business may be one's baby, but it's just a job to his employees and thirdly, the laws should be followed because employment law in the U.S. generally favors the employer over the employee (California is a notable exception).
Fourthly employers should be nice and fifthly bad employees should be dealt quickly.
