London, Apr 13 (ANI): Majority of workers think that their bosses are authoritarian, bureaucratic or secretive, reveals a survey.

However, only one in ten workers believes his or her boss is accessible and open.

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) said its survey of 500 employees showed that the country's economic recovery was at risk because of the "dominant" style of managers.

The study also found that more than one third of employees would prefer to be managed by Conservative leader David Cameron.

On the other hand, one fifth prefer Gordon Brown or Nick Clegg.

"It is an embarrassment for the UK that over half of companies' management style is seen to be negative by the people that know them best - their employees," the Scotsman quoted Ruth Spellman, chief executive of the CMI, as saying.

"In case bosses think this doesn't matter as long as they are turning a profit, think again. Goodwill and engagement among employees doesn't only improve people's working lives but it adds to the bottom line in productivity, retention rates and customer loyalty ... We need more businesses that are innovative, accessible and empowering," he added. (ANI)
