Workers in a recent survey cast a vote of confidence for the executives leading their firms. Approximately eight in 10 professionals polled by Robert Half Management Resources feel at least somewhat confident in the ability of senior management to grow the business, provide sound financial stewardship and drive innovation. Similar numbers of respondents believe their organization’s executives support staff members’ growth and manage change effectively.

Workers were asked how confident they are in the abilities of their company’s leadership in the following areas.

“Most professionals recognize and appreciate the efforts of company leaders,” said Tim Hird, executive director of Robert Half Management Resources. “In recent years, businesses responded to intense hiring competition by focusing on creating satisfying work experiences. For example, many firms now place greater emphasis on work-life balance and developing career paths for their teams.”

Hird noted that although the research paints a favorable picture for senior leaders, there is always room for improvement. “Gaining and keeping employees’ faith requires commitment,” he added. “Stay in touch with staff, and continually invest in their growth. Your ability to attract and retain talented professionals depends on it.”
