The Real Cost Of A Bad Boss [Video]
From the vitriolic Gordon Ramsay to the politically incorrect jester David Brent, the bad boss is a cherished trope of our culture. It's also a detested trope of many Americans' lives.
A video from the website Online MBA breaks down the real cost of bad bosses, with helpful illustrations and twinkly background music. Some of the video's disturbing stats:
- 3 out of 4 working Americans say their boss is their most stressful part of their jobs.
- 44 percent say they've been verbally, emotional or physically abused by a supervisor.
- 31 percent say their boss doesn't appreciate them.
- These bad working relationships cost the economy $360 billion a year, according to the video.
