A human resources consulting company called Adecco Group just released the results of a survey of 1,000 U.S. workers asking them which famous people they’d want to work for. I guess you don’t need to think that much to guess who won…… Give yourself a bell: It was Oprah!
Oprah Winfrey was the most popular pick . . . with 37% of the people surveyed saying they’d want to work for her. President Obama was number two, at 35%. People could vote for as many famous bosses as they wanted. I bet even Obama would love to work for OprahTony Hayward, the former CEO of BP, came in last, with only 4%. And Simon Cowell came in second-to-last, with only 8%.
After Oprah and Obama, the rest of the list, in order, is: Donald Trump at 28%, Michelle Obama at 26%, George W. Bush at 19%, Arnold Schwarzenegger at 16%, Sarah Palin at 15% . . .Martha Stewart at 14%, former GE CEO Jack Welch at 12%, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at 9%, former Yankees and Dodgers manager Joe Torre at 9%, Simon Cowell at 8%, and Tony Hawyard at 4%.
So, what about you, which celebrity you would like to work for? By the way, Jack is not hiring…….
