"Bad bosses" is an epidemic spreading through companies like wildfire. From my own experience, I can state that having a bad boss decreased productivity and created a hostile environment in the workplace. When you have a boss that is mean and short tempered towards their employees, employees will not work up to their potential. The fact in the video stating employees will call in sick days and not work at their potential hurts the company as a whole. Having a boss that no one cares for could eventually be the downfall of an entire company.

I know from experience that having a bad boss can make going to work stressful. I believe that having a good respectful relationship with your employees is very important. Let's face it, work isn't always fun but with a good team it can make it easier day by day.
I performed a study as a senior in college that found the relationship with your manager directly correlated with employee job satisfaction. Although my study was on a restaurant chain, I believe this outcome is true with any industry. It is important for a company to have good management in order to have good employees which will in turn produce good productivity! As this video shows, it can not only cost you employees, but also a hefty amount of money.
I couldn't agree more with this video. The way a company treats their employees is the most important aspect of running a business. If the employees are happy, the customers are happy. At my current job, my boss has physically and emotionally abused me in several ways. My anxiety levels are always extremely high when I go into work. I'm always so worried about upsetting him that it affects my work. I don't believe that this is the entire companies wrong doing, but it's just not the kind of boss that I work well with. I work really well in positive and encouraging atmospheres. I believe having a boss that treats his or her employees with respect and gratitude is a very important aspect of running a successful business.
Great video! Who knew that bad bosses cost people so much money?! I honestly feel as if all bosses should watch this video and rethink they're next move toward they're employees. When a person is happy in a situation, everything else around them and everything else that they do is out of happiness as well. When you enjoy what you do, it doesn't feel like work which will motivate you to do more.
This is very true and I’m glad someone took the time to do the research to prove this. I have been lucky enough to not have any bosses/supervisors that made me feel stressed, but the sad truth is many people can’t say the same. I would like to work in an HR capacity, so I know the importance of be a good boss. Bad bosses will lead to many employees coming to see me or someone else in the HR department. I fully intend to treat all of my co-workers with the utmost respect and dignity, although, this can be a challenging task. I believe many bosses start out with good intentions, but due to job stress, past work experiences, and current work experiences, many bosses are unable to keep their understanding mindset.
This video was a nice wake up call to how much money a bad boss costs a company, but it failed to tell you how to fix a bad boss. Knowing facts and figures raises awareness of possible problems and has you reevaluate your company's motivation. These could lead to spending more money to fix the problem, but could be overly rewarding in the long run.

This video shows how important the morale and happiness are to companies and the economy as a whole. When employees aren't happy, their on the job performance suffers, and that can be very detrimental to a company.

Man, I love these videos! I'm an artist so this really makes me want to draw on a dry erase board. Anyway, I totally agree with this. I know I've complained a lot about my bosses already, but it's so true. I don't work nearly as hard as I can because I don't feel like they deserve it. They constantly criticize and rarely compliment or give appraisal. On the rare occasions I do feel appreciated, I make sure to work harder to remain that great worker that they love so much. Hearing sexist comments from one boss, while the other blames you for someone else's mistake is enough to make me want to flip up my middle finger and walk out the back door.
Good video I agree that horrible bosses hurt the company in more ways than one. How are bad bosses created? What makes a bad boss? I think if the person hired to be in that position should be evaluated often to ensure he is performing and carryout that companies goals and values daily. If a particular shift or area has an extremely high turnover rate, that manger should be re-evaluated and closely monitored.
This video hit on a lot of issues that take place when there is a bad boss in charge. It is easy to understand why an employee would not be motivated if they have a bad boss, it is difficult to feel motivated when you are in a negative situation.

I've had a few bad bosses over my career. One of my experiences with a bad boss cause me the most stress in my entire life. It was useless trying to please her. Everything I did was wrong and needed to be redone. She was such a control freak that I eventually gave up trying. My work had digressed and I became unproductive because I knew it was a waste of time and energy to continue my focus on something she would not be stratified with and would likely do herself to save time. I don't think I can recall once instance when I was congratulated on a job well done. People need to know that someone is proud of their effort. This supervisor didn't do her job as a manager. My work days were the worst hours of my life.
I completely agree with this video. When you treat your employees in a bad way, you diminish their ability to produce at the best of their ability. Nobody works well when they are stressed and scared. Not to mention the amount of bad PR they gain when they treat their employees in a bad way. No employee is going to recommend that a person use their company if they are not happy working for that company.
This video did surprise me in a few ways. I know the basic costs of a bad boss; disinterest in your work, calling in sick, chronic stress and complaining. I guess i never really thought about everything else that can be caused because of a bad boss, like all the medical troubles and how much it really does effect the economy. I've personally have to deal with bosses who i wouldn't consider a "bad boss", but one that i thought could be better. This cause me so much stress and ultimately almost caused me to leave a good job i loved because i couldn't deal with it. I couldn't imagine going into a career once i enter the workforce after graduation that had a terrible boss, but apparently it happens much more then i believed.
The cost of a bad boss stress the importance of effective management. I've experienced a bad boss and good boss. The video made good points that a bad boss can cause employees to be less productive and become distant from the company. When I was working with a bad boss I would come to work late, take long lunch breaks, and I also quit in my annual review without giving notice. So bad bosses have an negative affect on a company. All mangers should encourage and appreciate their employees, because employees have an direct effect on the company's bottom line.
