Lack of trust in managers is ‘endemic’

Almost two-thirds of working New Zealanders do not trust their bosses, according to a survey by recruitment consultancy Seek.

The company polled 2,000 employees and found 61 per cent of them did not trust their manager. It said a lack of trust in management is endemic in New Zealand workplaces.

“Across all industry sectors, 61 per cent of employees say that management in their organisations does not inspire trust,” the firm said.

The survey found that 53 per cent of staff were dissatisfied with the quality of management at their current job; 47 per cent were unhappy with their salary; 47 per cent hated the stress and 46 per cent were unhappy with the lack of feedback and appreciation they received.
