Think your next generation of managers will come from your rank-and-file workers? Don’t be so sure. Surprisingly, 49% of employees with the experience to become managers say they don’t want any part of a managerial role, according to a new survey of 2,200 employees by Randstad. Why?

Increased stress is the main reason, followed by having to deal with disgruntled employees, increased paperwork and terminations. Survey conclusion: “Companies need to be sure they are constantly reiterating managers’ valuable contributions, not only to the company, but to the broader workforce.”
