Employees don’t think that their managers possess the necessary management skills and confidence to do their jobs well, according to new research.
A Chartered Management Institute (CMI) study found that 55 per cent of respondents lacked faith in the competency of their managers.
Furthermore, 38 per cent of people interviewed said that they felt that their bosses were happy with their output, highlighting a “competence-confidence” gap in the UK.
This was creating an unhappy atmosphere in the workplace with 29 per cent of employees feeling stressed because of their managers work ethic and behaviour.
Worryingly, 34 per cent of people felt that the negativity emanating from their managers affected their ability to enjoy their job.
The study comes on the back of the CMI’s latest Economic Outlook Survey, which revealed that a whopping 70 per cent of managers had noted a massive drop in the morale of employees over the last six months.
