TSMC chairman most admired boss: survey

The chairman of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., The world's largest contract chip maker, is the boss that employees most admire and would like to follow, a survey conducted by an online human resources company shows.

Over one third of those polled, or 35.3 percent, said they wished Morris Chang (???) were their boss. He was followed at 28.5 percent by Terry Gou (???), chairman of Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., the world's largest contract electronics maker, and at 23.7 percent by Jonney Shih (???), chairman of Asustek Computer Inc., one of Taiwan's leading personal computer brands.

Asked to rate their bosses in terms of leadership, the respondents gave an average score of 57.8 points, not even up to the passing grade of 60, but lower than 59.5 recorded last year.

In comparison, those polled were more positive about their professionalism, giving a score of 68.9 points, compared with 68.7 points last year.

Asked about the things they could not tolerate with their bosses, flipflop policies topped the list, followed by poor emotional management, extra workload and exploitation of subordinates, liking to call the shots but doing nothing themselves, and showing favoritism toward certain staff.
