Most Spanish employees consider their bosses empathic, but think they should be more efficient, especially when it comes to organizing team work.

Only half (55 per cent) trust decisions taken by their managing directors.

Sixty-two per cent of employees are optimistic about the future of their company, although only 58 per cent are confident that they will remain in the company.

While salary is the primary concern of workers aged 18 to 29, those between 30 and 55 worry more about job security.
