Do you trust your boss?

In response to global market conditions, the editors of Harvard Business Review are partnering with HEC School of Management, Paris and the Community of European Management Schools (CEMS) to gather information on a global scale about firm restructuring and the effect downsizing will have on the attractivity of working for a company.

Initial findings show that an organisations’ response to their market conditions may impact the level of trust that managers experience, with lower-level managers trusting strangers as much as their bosses. Both earned a 3.6 on a 1 to 5 trust scale. Higher-level managers trust their bosses slightly more (3.9 to 3.6), but that trust could be misguided; researcher Michael Segalla’s data suggests higher-level managers are more likely to get laid off.
