10 Things we Hate about Bosses

Great Place to Work Organisation

10 things that employees surveyed last year by the Great Place to Work organisation said contributed to poor management:

  1. Lack of Recognition and Appreciation – employees who believe that managers do not really appreciate the work, energy and effort put in during their days and sometimes evenings
  2. Poor Communication – employees want to find out about their company performance and direction from their boss, not the rumour mill, nor the newspapers
  3. Thoughtless Interaction - passing by without a smile or any acknowledgement
  4. Inconsistent Behaviour - broken promises, it is often the smaller broken promises that really grate upon the employees; say one thing, act differently
  5. Favouritism - we all have favourites, good managers learn to appreciate diversity
  6. Exclusion from Decision Making - the less control employees feel, the greater they suffer from stress
  7. Lack of Clarity and Vision - unclear expectations, unclear connection between the work employees are doing and the overall mission of the company
  8. Egotistical Managers - taking credit and passing blame
  9. Treating Employees like Numbers - a transactional relationship, where emotion and fun has been lost in translation
  10. Ignoring Performance Issues - it frustrates good performers when poor performers are not being challenged
