Don't Trust Your Boss? You're Not Alone

A new study suggests that the majority of Canadian workers do not trust their boss.

Watson Wyatt found in a survey of 3,000 Canadians that only 44 per cent trust their company's leadership, “with the levels of trust dropping substantially at lower levels of the organization.”

Furthermore, only 43 per cent of survey respondents said their leaders respond with straight answers.

“The findings clearly indicate there is room for improvement in establishing effective two-way communication with employees, in order to generate a higher level of employee motivation and commitment,” said Debra Horsfield, practice leader in organizational effectiveness at Watson Wyatt.
