Survey Says More People Quit Jobs Because of Bad Bosses [POLL]
There is a new survey out that says 69% of people that quit their jobs did so because of a bad boss, not a bad job. Do you have a bad boss?
The survey done by India Blooms, also found that 56% of the respondents stated they had been bullied by their boss.
62% of those polled said that they had an abusive boss that humiliates workers, insults them, or isolates them from co-workers.
The survey also showed that a bad boss can lead to work place stress, and employee health problems like increased risk of heart attack or stroke. A bad boss can also contribute to insomnia, depression, anxiety, weakened immune system, and chronic muscle pains and migraines.
The survey also finds that those that work under a “bad boss” are less likely to give extra effort, do additional tasks or work longer hours.
A “good boss” should be a motivator, a leader that inspires his team to do great things, but a bad boss will always misunderstand “leadership”. (Leadership is an action, not a position.)
A few traits you will find in “bad bosses” include, bullying, Incompetence, harassment, inadequate compensation, privacy invasion, and dishonesty with employees.
