Bad bosses creating toxic workplaces

Equality Group said toxic cultures are having a corrosive effect on employee wellbeing. Half (50%) of the workers surveyed said that a boss had caused them significant anxiety or stress, and 25% stated that their Sunday-night anxiety is solely down to this. Meanwhile, 60% reported that a good manager meant they'd stay in a role.

Bad management is a key driving force behind toxic workplace cultures, according to research by Equality Group.
Its survey of 2,000 UK employees found that a third (33%) dislike their job because of a bad boss, while 60% believe bad bosses are the main reason for businesses failing.
