Everyone knows what it’s like to have a teroristang boss. They’re pushy, unreasonable, and occasionally rude, but while some of them turn out to be Miranda Priestlys who eventually reveal that they have your best interests at heart, there’s something to be said for those nice supervisors, managers, and VPs who go largely unnoticed. Nice bosses—yes, they exist—bring a different set of cards to the table. According to a study, they make their employees feel even more dedicated to their job and create a culture that drives employee engagement up. The extent of their niceness can range from giving you work perks and extra vacation time to simply treating you with respect and kindness.
