Female bosses ditch the harshness and embrace a caring workplace | News.com.au

American businesswoman Susan Decker, president...

FEMALE bosses have been revealed as more tolerant than male managers of their staff maintaining a work-life balance.

A study has found rather than berating staff for shopping, banking and paying bills at their desks, women are more likely to appreciate the fact staff have to maintain a work-life balance, The Daily Telegraph reported.

By contrast, male bosses are more likely to lose their temper when spotting workers on Facebook, Twitter, shopping websites or overhearing them making personal calls.

Female bosses are more likely to take the personal situation of staff into account when it comes to managing and reprimanding their staff.

They were more likely to be aware of, and sympathetic to, problems people may be having in their personal life.

Men, on the other hand, were more inclined to tell employees off for letting home life get in the way of work, and admitted to having to do so on a daily basis, the research into the attitudes of 1000 bosses commissioned by Vodafone in Britain found.
