Public Sector managers are stressed out and nearly half want to leave.But they won't.
Autocratic and bureaucratic management styles are to blame.But are not likely to change.
Public sector organisations are in decline according to half of the managers who work in this sector. Levels of stress are high due to autocratic and bureaucratic management styles, 98 per cent of managers have experienced a recent reorganisation and 46 per cent have been involved in compulsory redundancies. As a result 42 per cent want to leave.
These are the finding of research reported by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Simply Health which as a result is urging senior managers to take a greater interest in the wellbeing of staff and adopt a more engaging management style.
