UK employees 'do not currently trust their managers'

4 July 2011

The importance of good management has been underlined by a new survey showing the level of mistrust between the majority of UK workers and their bosses.

Data collated by YouGov as part of a report by the Good Work Commission has revealed that only four in ten British employees currently believe their managers act with integrity.

Almost half of those polled noted a decline in trust between management and staff in the last year, while only a quarter believe that redundancies are handled in a compassionate way.

Stephen Bevan of The Work Foundation stated that managers must therefore do more to regain the trust and confidence of their workforce, for the overall good of the economy.

"For the individuals, good work encompasses not only the pay and conditions that set the formal context within which they do their jobs, but also being engaged in something they feel is meaningful," he explained.

Last month, the Society for Human Resource Management published a survey showing that organisations believe employee engagement is the most important HR challenge they currently face.
