One in four people working in project management jobs and other roles believe that their bosses act with integrity, according to new research published this morning (July 5th).
The Work Foundation found in its Good Work and Our Times report that almost half of British employees feel that the level of trust between management and employees has got worse in the last year.
Furthermore, it revealed that only one in four employees feel that their organisation manages redundancy compassionately, suggesting that changes could need making.
Alan Parker, chairman of the Good Work Commission, explained the decline in employee-manager relations is predominantly because of the economic crisis.
"In times of crisis the 'how' becomes more important from a risk management point of view, but the bigger trend is how 'good work' can be at the heart of high performance organisations. Whether as an individual or as an organisation, it is a key ingredient in creating the winners of tomorrow," he explained.
Research by the Chartered Management Institute revealed last month that 38 per cent of the 2,000 employees questioned say that their boss thinks he or she is good at what they do.
