It seems there are a lot of trust issues in the workplace. Specifically, a lot of people don't trust their boss.
That's according to Adecco Group North America's latest American Insights Workplace Survey, which found that 53 percent of respondants think their boss is dishonest.
As far as specifics, 25 percent of those surveyed said they believe their boss is not telling the truth about job security. On a related note, 28 percent said they'd fire or lay off their boss if given the chance.
Other findings from the study:
--Just 32 percent of respondants feel like their boss is loyal
--61 percent think their boss is impatient
--49 percent think their boss is "likeable" (This would definitely hurt Michael Scott's feelings)
--66 percent think their boss in unfair
But it's not all bad.
--89 percent of respondants said their relationship with their boss is important to their job satisfaction
--65 percent say they wouldn't change anything about their relationship with their boss
--Just 39 percent said they'd take their boss' job if offered
There's a lot more data to pour through in this survey. I'm trying to put together a localized story for the print edition later in the week.
In the mean time, just one more shopping day left after today until National Boss Day on Friday.
