I had written about ASSOCHAM survey couple of weeks back which concluded that more than 68% men and women prefer male bosses at their work. I did not really agree with this survey and decided to carry out my own small survey on Trak.in. There are about 202 trak.in readers who have participated (till this point) in the survey and it reflects exactly what I feel.
Out of 202 poll voters, 42% prefer female bosses at workplace, 37% prefer male and 21% said they have no preference.
One cannot really pass any judgement as votes are quite evenly distributed. Infact, till couple of days back the vote count for males and females were running neck to neck. I can safely say Indians do not have much of a gender preference for their bosses at work, and if at all there is, the scales are slightly tilted towards female bosses unlike what the ASSOCHAM survey showed.
Although the sample size of this poll is too small to make a serious judgement, it gives an indicator of what Indians feels about their bosses.
