Managers’ Reputations Outshine Execs’


More than half of employees are happy with their manager’s performance (52%) and honesty (60%), but top executives did not receive equal praise.

According to a survey by Robert Half International and CareerBuilder.com, only 44% of workers are satisfied with executive performance and 40% believe executives are trustworthy. The percentage of employees who think executives lead by example and are able to motivate staff drops even lower, to 36% and 34%, respectively.

Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder.com, notes, “Line managers have the benefit of being able to build rapport through daily interactions, whereas corporate executives typically must rely on more formal communication channels, which may not always be effective.”
