UK Study Shows Close to a Third of Workers Don’t Trust their Boss

A new research study conducted by the Institute of Leadership & Management found that 31% of people in the UK have little or no trust for their bosses and senior managers.  Managers in government and the media are least trusted by their employees, while those in the nonprofit and retail areas enjoy higher levels of trust than the other sectors.

The full report, ILM/MT Index of Leadership Trust 2009, is available to download from ILM’s website at www.i-l-m.com/trustindex.

  1. What if a manager (or management of a company) assumes that human beings are untrustworthy? I’ve been writing on this…as to what it tells about their attitude toward their customers. I suspect that such managers would still try to create a culture of trust, if only as a sort of window-dressing (i.e., marketing and human resource management tool). Nice blog!
