Supportive Supervisors: A Dream or Reality?
For a conducive work environment where the employees and the organization thrive, having a supportive and understanding supervisor is an absolute must. The employees should feel comfortable enough to walk up to their managers for any issue they are facing. It is also equally important that the managers look after the mental and physical wellbeing of their juniors. And if a person is lucky enough to find a manager like this, they can fully invest their time and effort in the work they are doing. Conducting a poll on the same, we asked 4,920 respondents whether they like the managers they report to at their workplace. The majority of the respondents (55.83%) are happy with their supervisors as they are incredibly supportive. 24.57% have mixed feelings about them, while 8.19% report working with unsupportive managers. 11.40% of the respondents, however, are indifferent to how their managers are. Going by the data, it seems, for most people, supportive supervisors do exist!
