The world’s No. 2 staffing company believes the growing financial crisis has impacted employee morale.
A study by Randstad USA, a unit of Randstad NV, finds half of U.S. workers don’t respect their bosses and only half believe they are competent.
Randstad’s director, Eric Buntin, said in these tough economic times, companies are focusing more on the bottom line at the expense of employee relations.
Some other stats from the survey:
- Only 43% think their boss is open to new ideas
- Just 47% were willing to work overtime to impress their boss and create more job security for themselves, and
- Less than 30% believed their bosses were fulfilling their roles as motivators, role models or mentors.
