Study suggests CEOs have lots of influence on the political leanings of their employees.
Does your CEO have more influence than he or she knows? When it comes to politics, according to a study reported on by The New York Times, “It may not be an overstatement to suggest that a chief executive’s politics may be one of the most significant factors in swaying how employees think about elections.” Employees donate three times more to political candidates their firm’s CEO supports. And when the company switches CEOs, employees redirect their donations toward the new boss’s preference.
