The article presents information on the results of several business surveys conducted by Croner Consulting. A survey by Croner says that 60% of businesses are not so generous or indeed concerned about their employee's welfare in retirement. Many people put off planning their pension due to hectic work schedules and lack of free time. Businesses across Great Britain are calling for a change in boardroom behavior and a curb of cash bonuses. 96% of human resource professionals agree that the fat cat bosses are bad for business, leading to poor employee relations, says a further survey by Croner. The survey results prove that nearly all businesses support a more rigorous approach to corporate governance. Commenting on the office foliage policy of the British Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Richard Smith of Croner Consulting said that the DTI creates so much unnecessary red tape for businesses if it imposes such extreme measures. Croner Consulting's offices have the theme bringing the outdoors in, which incorporates plants and water features in its offices.
