Vetle from Norway sent me a link to an article about how bad management is making norwegian employees unhappy at work and costing business tons of money.
From the article:
22% of employees surveyed consider their immediate manager so weak, that maybe that person shouldn’t be a manager at all.
There is a clear connection between good managers, satisfied employees and profits. Happy employees create happy customers – and better results for the business. According to our research, happy employees mean a 40% increase in profits.
Also one in three rate their manager as technically competent but a bad leader.
The question is: Is this a norwegian phenomonon or is this true in your country too? What do you think?
