The study also found that more bosses than before under the age of 35 were of the view that they had less favourable working conditions then their older peers.
One if four young bosses felt that they lacked the authority and flexibility necessary to develop their business.

Ledarna has calculated that Sweden needs to recruit 250,000 new bosses over the next ten years in order to replace the current crop of leaders nearing retirement age.
