Bad managers and their effect on productivity – Survey results

In my last post, I was claiming that bad managers cause employee demotivation and hence decrease productivity and increase turnover rates.  I conducted an online Survey and here are the results:

226 people participated in answering the survey and the outcome was:

1- In answering the question of “If you had the bad manager described in question 1 would you think of resigning?” – 67.3% answered YES

2- In answering the question “Do you think you can give your full potential and be productive with a bad manager” – 80.5% answered NO

3- In answering the question of “Assuming you work with a bad manager now will you think of quitting” – 67.3% answered YES

4- In answering the question “Do you personally think that a bad manager can negatively affect productivity and increase turnover rates” – 97.3% answered YES

5- In answering the question “If you have a bad manager and you don’t quit it is because…” – 50.5% answered can’t find a better opportunity and 42.7% answered can’t find another job with the same or better salary.

6- Amazingly the answers to the question “How many bad managers did you encounter in your career” were:

52.3% said 2 -5

32.3% said only one

3.2% said 6 – 10

0.5% said more

and the ones who said None were 11.8%

This means that there are a lot of bad managers out there!

Below are the results in graphs:
