61% of bosses raise confidence levels
The survey was conducted in the lead up to National Hug Your Boss Day, which is on Friday 22nd August 2014 to find out how employees perceive their bosses and how it affects them.
On the other hand, 25% feel their bosses make them feel de-valued and want to quit their job and 14% feel that bosses cause them stress and headache. That is a total of 39% sending negative vibes about their boss!
National Hug Your Boss Day was created in 2008 to build awareness of the employee/boss relationship as well as normal employee relations at work. With on average 40 hours per week being spent at work, it is important to make sure that working relationships are healthy and positive. Ultimately, if there are constructive relations with colleagues and managers, it can help individuals to feel motivated which then has a knock on effect on the productivity of the company. All round it ends in a win-win situation.
Corinne Hutchinson comments, “To support National Hug Your Boss Day, we are asking you to take a picture of you with your boss (hugging ideally!) and send that into us at hugyourboss@TipTopJob.com or upload it to our Facebook page. Get behind the day and support a good cause.”
