Female Managers more critical of Organisations

according to Roffey Park’s Annual Management Agenda report.

Female managers are more critical of their bosses, less impressed by their boards, and see more conflict in the workplace than men.

It seems that female managers have higher standards and expect promises to be kept and people to be honest at work.

Of course it could be that as most top managers are men they are happy with the way things are – although that will change as more women fill senior and board level posts.

Previous research has found that most employees prefer male managers, even women, but also that many companies turn to women when the company is in crisis.
