Support by supervisors - trebly important, simply underestimated

BIBB/BAuA-Factsheet 09

The Stress Report Germany 2012 showed that there is a backlog demand in Germany regarding help and support by direct supervisors. Only 59% of employees in the BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey 2012 report that they can frequently count on support by their supervisors. In comparison, 80% can frequently build on support by colleagues. Germany is at the bottom of the list among European data: in no other EU-27-Member State is the proportion of those who never or seldom receive support by supervisors as high as in Germany (see Stress Report 2012). This Factsheet focuses on the support by the direct supervisor and its significance in the context of work-related stress and employees' health complaints.
