+ - Study: 2 Out of 5 Bosses Are Liars

Submitted by Freshly Exhumed
Freshly Exhumed writes: The abusive boss has been well documented in movies ("Nine to Five"), television (Fox's "My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss") and the Web. A new Florida State University study shows that nearly two of five bosses don't keep their word and more than a fourth bad mouth those they supervise to co-workers, leading to poor morale, less production and higher turnover. 'They say that employees don't leave their job or company, they leave their boss. We wanted to see if this is, in fact, true,' said Wayne Hochwarter, an associate professor of management in FSU's College of Business.
