U.S. workers may not trust their boss, but they do trust their colleagues. More than a third of workers (34%) say they “very much” trust their work colleagues and another 38% say they “moderately” do, according to a survey of 475 workers by consultant Lee Hecht Harrison. Only 28% say they trust their co-workers either “slightly” or not at all.
To help build interoffice trust, the group suggests managers “find opportunities to connect, stay visible, communicate more and show genuine interest in employees.”
