According to a new CareerBuilder survey, a majority of workers think their boss is doing an above-average job. Asked to evaluate their bosses’ performance, more than 6 in 10 (63 percent) U.S. workers say their manager deserves an “A” or a “B” while 1 in 7 would assign a “D” or “F” (14 percent).
Grades appear to be aligned with bosses’ communication and management styles. Workers who interact more frequently with their bosses tend to rate their performance better than those who keep their distance. The study also showed a correlation between positive ratings of bosses and open communication even if that communication doesn’t take place in person.
Here’s the breakdown:
A: 24 percent
B: 39 percent
C: 23 percent
D: 9 percent
F: 5 percent
The nationwide survey was conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder from February 10 to March 4, 2014, and included a representative sample of 3,022 full-time, private sector workers across industries and company sizesworkplace
