Boss: pull up your socks

Australia's staff retention crisis could be solved if "bosses pulled up their socks", according to a survey by recruitment specialist, Morgan & Banks.

In a recent survey of 2500 people in Australia, employees said all they really want from a boss is someone who is a good leader, gives good direction, notices good work and gives recognition and encouragement.

John Banks, director of Morgan & Banks, said: "Loyalty is very important to those in the 55-plus age bracket, while 45 to 54 year olds are partial to good leadership." Stress was cited as the main bone of contention between employees and their bosses. A massive 66.5 per cent of males and 62 per cent of females said they were under extreme stress.
