Recently Adele Carr Financial Recruitment asked accounting professionals (135 respondents) the following 3 questions:-
Is your current place of work, a positive place to work?
If ‘NOT’ then why?
How could your work place environment improve?
62% confirmed that they felt that their current work place was NOT a positive place to work

64% felt that the work place environment could improve with an improved office culture
Perhaps this feedback should not be much of a surprise, especially, 48% highlighting management as an issue.
