37% say being a Good Listener is their bosss best GOOD trait
The survey looked at a number of different GOOD and BAD traits over several weeks. Although being a good listener ranked the highest in the responses for those GOOD traits, 20% reported “taking responsibility” and 18% “communication” as being the best GOOD traits.
On the flip side, the WORST trait was reported as being a “doubter” (there is nothing more destructive than being questioned, watched and not trusted!) with 24% selecting this option. However, 19% said their boss was “selfish”, 17% said they had a “bad temper” and 12% felt their boss was “secretive”.
National Hug Your Boss Day is being celebrated this Friday, the 4th September 2015 promoting healthy working relationships between colleagues, bosses and managers. They have launched a new website highlighting facts and stats, motivational articles, quotations, tests about relationships along with displays of hugs caught on camera and video over the years.
Bosses, colleagues and anyone who would like to get involved can simply upload their HUGS to the Facebook page, Tweet them #hugyourboss #hugyourbossday or send an email.
Corinne Hutchinson, marketing manager at TipTopJob.com commented, “National Hug Your Boss Day is a light bit of fun to have when there is so much stress of everyday work and life. On a more serious note though, National Hug Your Boss Day and TipTopJob want to highlight the importance of good relationships at work and help everyone to get to a point where they are comfortable and happy with colleagues and managers/bosses.
