Survey: Bosses impactworkers' happiness
NEW YORK -- Bosses have more control over employee happiness than productivity -- at least according to their staff, a recent survey found.
While 56 percent of American workers said that their supervisors have a direct impact on their work-life happiness, less than half believe their bosses influence productivity.
Baby boomers were more likely to report that bosses had a strong impact on their daily lives than their Generation Y counterparts, and men were more likely than females to say that bosses directly affect their work performance, said Addeco North America, a work-force solutions company.
