Journalist Ikegami, actress Amami voted ideal bosses

14 Comments

Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company surveyed this year’s new graduates about their “Ideal Boss,” and results revealed that the majority of new male employees would like to have journalist Akira Ikegami, 61, as their superior, while women would prefer actress Yuki Amami, 44.

Amami was also voted No. 1 last year and in 2010, while Ikegami replaces Seattle Mariners' Ichiro as No. 1 in the survey of 966 employees.

Many men explained that they chose Ikegami as their most ideal boss because of his knowledge of current affairs and the ease with which he explains them. Amami was voted most ideal by women because “She seems the sort of person who would give good advice.”

Amami was voted most ideal by women because “She seems the sort of person who would give good advice.”

If it is about acting advices, ask someone else, please.

"boss because of his knowledge of current affairs and the ease with which he explains them........because “She seems the sort of person who would give good advice."

Either way you cut it, it's a stupid poll and the reasons are too. Does your boss explain current affairs to you and do you really care about his knowledge of current affairs? Do you go to your boss for advice? It just seems like PR nonsense to me.

"Ideal boss based on their appearances on TV or film"

Read the article. Other reasons are given.

If Yuki Amami was my boss, I'd do anything she asked, ha ha!

Personally I'd go for Tadao Ando

Who cares? Another pointless and senseless poll. And for the record..........I don't care. Bring on the thumbs down.

Were any actual bosses offered as choices for "best boss" on this, yet another, ridiculous poll?

Personally speaking Softbank's white dog character would be better than Ichiro.

Thankfully people woke up and smelled the coffee.

The men would prefer Akira Ikegami to Yuki Amami? Or did they have to vote for a guy?

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Ichiro Suzuki lost to Ikegami (?)
