Do You Trust Your Boss? Survey Has Answers
Earlier this month, research firm Leadership IQ released a survey of 7,209 executives, managers and employees to assess trust in the workplace. The survey sought to uncover whether trust matters in the workplace, how much trust exists today and which aspects of trust are most critical for improving organizational performance.
The survey uncovered three key findings:
1. trust drives results
2. trust significantly predicts employee loyalty, and
3. there’s not enough trust.
Among the statistical findings,
*32 percent of workers’ desire to remain with a company or seek employment elsewhere relates to their level of trust towards their bosses
*20 percent of employees strongly trust top management
*36 percent moderately trust top management
*44 percent don’t trust or strongly distrust top management.
