Britain’s bosses play an essential role in driving our economy forward.
From the smallest start-up to the biggest corporation, every business needs a boss or leadership team capable of making strategic decisions, coupled with the skills to grow the business.
But even the best boss is incapable of building a successful company on their own and much of this success is underpinned by happy and hardworking staff who feel motivated and incentivised to perform for the business.
When it comes to developing the optimum atmosphere, bosses are the starting point and the relationships they develop with their staff are key to ensuring workers are willing to put the effort in for the business.
By surveying more than 1,000 workers over the age of 18 in the UK, this report will shine a light on the attributes that make a great boss and how many actually demonstrate these qualities in the workplace.
The report will examine how positive and negative relationships impact on the atmosphere of a workplace and the attitudes of the workforce towards a company – including the impact a great boss can have on performance, retention and morale.
Finally, this study will look to eradicate stereotypes of who makes a better boss in the real world, looking at whether men or women are actually thought of as better bosses, and whether a university degree or life experience is the bigger factor in being a better business leader.
