Female bosses are more tolerant of employees doing personal chores during work hours new research has shown. Instead of berating colleagues for getting errands done in company time, women are more likely to appreciate the fact that staff have to maintain a work–life balance.
They will only address the issue if employees
are behind in their work when spotted on Facebook, Twitter or shopping
websites, or overhearing them making personal calls.
bosses are also more likely to take the personal situation of staff into
account when it comes to managing and reprimanding their staff.
contrast, male bosses 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.
