UK staff confident about replacing the boss

More
than three-quarters of UK workers feel they could do their boss’s job,
according to a survey by staffing services company, Select Appointments.

In
a poll of more than 2,000 people from a variety of industries, 78 per cent felt
that they would be able to tackle a more senior role – specifically that of
their boss.

Rachael
Moss, head of marketing and communications at Select Appointments, said the
survey showed UK bosses needed to start looking over their shoulders, as well
as indicating growing levels of ambition and confidence within the working
population.

"While
these findings suggest that UK workers are keen to stretch themselves in a more
senior role, it’s important to ensure that adequate skills and experience have
been amassed first to avoid over-promotion,” she said.
