Workers 'have a lack of faith' in management

Tuesday 21 February 2012 by Gina Le Prevost

Individuals in European finance jobs may be among those that a new survey has found do not have confidence in their bosses.

According to a study by XpertHR and reported by Personnel Today, six out of ten employees do not think their managers are competent at dealing with underperforming staff.

This is in contrast to the opinion of employers, 60 per cent of whom said their organisation is quite effective at tackling underperformance, with one in eight rating themselves as very effective

The report's author Rachel Suff said that bosses need support if they are to be able to take charge of performance management, adding that training is the best way to do this.

Employers believe that the key to managing the issue is regular feedback and guidance on an informal basis, the survey found.

Recently, the news provider stated that many firms are still confused about the impact of new regulations on the default retirement age, with many worrying about the possibility of legal cases.
