(NEW YORK) — In what is probably good news for the producers of the CBS reality series Undercover Boss, which features CEOs donning disguises to work alongside lower-level employees, a new survey reveals many workers have never met their top boss, and a large number don’t even know what their chief executive looks like.
A survey commissioned by CareerBuilder.com shows 40 percent of American workers have never met their company’s head honcho, and 20 percent don’t know what their top boss looks like.
A majority of workers in IT, financial services and retail say they have not met their company’s chief executive.
Workers in the Midwest and South are most likely to not know what their CEO looks like.
The survey also finds that more than two-thirds of American workers don’t know how much their company generates in revenue each year.
The CareerBuilder.com survey of 7,780 workers was conducted by Harris Interactive.
