Employees worldwide like their managers

Nearly seven out of 10 people think they can do their boss’s job more effectively, according to the Global State of Managers survey by The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated and Future Workplace.

While bosses worldwide are well regarded by their employees, these same employees think they could personally manage even more effectively, with younger Millennial (73%) and Gen Z (70%) employees most confident they could do better.

Based on grades given of a C, D, or F, at least one in three employees feel their manager could improve at modelling work-life balance, their ability to coach for better job performance, handling performance-related issues and communication.

Managers in the technology industry are on top overall, scoring highest marks in people management (81%), communication (75%) and modelling work-life balance (70%).
