      Many workers do not respect their bosses
      Mon Oct 6, 3:45 PM ET

      Almost half of U.S. workers do not respect their boss and only half
      believe they are competent, according to an online survey released on
      Friday.

      The study by Randstad USA, a unit of the world's number two staffing
      company Randstad NV, found that the growing financial crisis has seen
      companies focusing more on their bottom line at the expense of relations
      with employees.

      "Employees' professional development and morale should always be a
      priority for employers and especially in an economic slowdown when
      employees may feel additional burdens," said Randstad director Eric Buntin.

      The Internet survey of 2,337 people also found only 43 percent think
      their boss is open to new ideas and only 47 percent were willing to work
      overtime to impress their boss and create more job security for themselves.

      Less than 30 percent believed their bosses were fulfilling their roles
      as motivators, role models or mentors.

      "When it comes to impressing the boss to create more job security during
      hard times of economic uncertainty, the survey indicates women are
      willing to work harder," Buntin said. "A healthy employee-employer
      relationship greatly contributes to an overall positive workplace attitude."

      The survey was carried out by Harris Interactive. Data was weighted to
      be representative of the total U.S. population based on region, age
      within gender, education, household, income, and race.

      Skipper: Professor, will you tell these people who is
      in charge on this island?
      Professor: Why, no one.
      Skipper: No one?
      Thurston Howell III: No one? Good heavens, this is anarchy!
