Likeable bosses boost productivity in employees, a new survey has discovered. 

According to a survey released earlier this week, 86% of employees believe they are more productive if they like their boss. 

The survey by TipTopJob showed that good working relationships with managers and bosses are slightly more important than with fellow employees. Just 37% of respondents said that good  relationships with other employees made them more productive. 

Happiness was also listed as a motivator for 22% of employees. 

Corinne Hutchinson, TipTopJob spokesperson said the surveys certainly “back up the idea that if you have happy working relationships you are more likely to be more productive at work – some interesting findings that managers and bosses should take on board.”
