How employees perceive managers

In a recent survey of 3,000 American workers conducted by GoodHire, 83% of respondents said they could do their job without a manager. That number increases to 89% for finance and insurance professionals, 88% among healthcare workers, and 87% for those in hospitality, science, and technology roles. Beyond that, 84% of respondents said they could do their manager’s job, and 82% said they would consider quitting because of a bad manager.

The widely shared sentiment toward managers can be traced back to two primary causes: how they’re selected, and how they’re trained (or not trained).
