Would You Vote For Your Boss? (Photo: Business Wire)

A global poll conducted by Monster reveals that more than three quarters of respondents have so little faith in their managers that they would vote them out of their job if they had the chance. Nearly one third of respondents (30 percent) would vote themselves into their manager’s position instead, and one in four (25 percent) would vote for another colleague who they think would be better qualified in the role, while around one in five (21 percent) would eschew all of these options and hope for a new candidate to enter the race.

Monster, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW) asked visitors to their site the question, “In your current or most recent job, who would you vote into your manager's position?” and received 2411 responses. International findings included:

  • I'd vote for the current boss to keep his/her job: 24%
  • I'd vote for a colleague who'd make a better manager: 25%
  • I'd vote for myself, of course!: 30%
  • I'd hope for a new candidate to enter the race: 21%

Workers surveyed in Mexico appear to be the most self-confident, as nearly half (46 percent) said they would prefer to see themselves in their manager’s position. The average worker in Europe is not so confident, with only 28 percent who indicated they would vote for themselves; however the French buck this general European trend with 45 percent keen to vote themselves into their boss’s seat.

In terms of favoring colleagues to take the managerial position, U.S. workers were among the most supportive, with 27 percent believing that a colleague would make a better manager than their current boss.
