BOSS S DAY 2010, A replica of surprising economic downturn is now so far employers, with nearly half (45 percent) of workers in the United States indicating their relationship with their boss has been affected by the recession, according to the latest survey Staffing Services Spherion Snapshot. In addition, those who say that there relationship with their boss was affected, 74 percent of these workers say the recession has eroded their relationship with their boss negatively.

The 2010 Boss Day survey conducted by Monster on behalf of Spherion Staffing, also found that over a third of workers (34 percent) say they are somewhat or very dissatisfied with their relationships with their boss.

Bosses offer little support in career development, with great harm to their workers

Not only do many employers unable to support the career development of their employees, in many cases they impede their progress. The study found that 38 percent of workers said their boss is somewhat or very indifferent when it comes to their career development, with 27 percent saying that the attitude of their boss about their development career has changed since the recession.

More worryingly, nearly half of workers (45 percent) say their boss has taken credit for their work, and another 37 percent say their boss has “thrown into the bus” to save himself / herself.

Erodes confidence in the Moguls

Many workers believe their bosses have not been completely honest and frank about job security, and in many cases feel little respect for their manager. The study found one in four believes that his boss is somewhat or very honest about their job security, and more than half (53 percent) say their boss does not respect them as the professional equality.

And, many employees lack confidence in discussing sensitive issues or unethical with their managers. The study showed 46 percent of workers say they do not think they can freely and openly discuss issues of unethical work with their boss and 44 percent say they can not confide about labor issues sensitive or confidential.

“At a time when workers are probably added support and guidance to offset the uncertainties that come with a faltering economy, many employers are simply not stepping up to the plate,” says Loretta Penn, President, and Spherion Staffing Services. “Managers need to create an environment that promotes open and direct communication, provides full support for workers, and demonstrates the commitment to career development. Unfortunately, many employers today are simply not carrying out this responsibility. ”

Workers have little admiration, respect to employment patterns

Perhaps the most surprising of all, only 34 percent of workers would accept employment if they were offered with a full 40 percent say they would not accept their bosses’ bosses for their jobs. When it is the job performance, many employees feel they can do better.

According to the study, 44 percent of employees feel they could do a better job than their boss, and 61 percent believe they possess qualities better management of their boss. This may be contributing to the shortage of loyalty to their bosses. When asked if they wanted to join their boss if they move to another company and had the chance to join them, 43 percent said no and another 35 percent said they did not know.

“The relationship between supervisors and their employees play an important role in job satisfaction,” said Penn. “With nearly all aspects of labor market and the workplace on shaky ground, companies can not afford employ workers uncommitted or login turnover costs rose -. Two very unlikely if they remain dissatisfied and disheartened by their bosses’


The October 2010 Spherion Bosses day labor survey was conducted online within the United States by Monster Worldwide, on behalf of Spherion Staffing Services between September 29 and October 7, 2010 among a sample of 231 U.S. adults work, aged 20 and older. Respondents represent those invited to participate in the survey, which includes full and part-time workers.

All surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, the coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, Monster feels the use of “margin of error” is misleading. Anything that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities pure, unweighted, random samples with response rates of 100%. These are only theoretical because no published polls approaching this ideal.

Respondents to this survey were selected at random from those who agreed to receive communication from Monster, so no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
