Research carried out by Reabur shows that 38 per cent of respondents believe women make better bosses than men, while 29 per cent think a male manager is best and 33 per cent say gender is irrelevant.
The poll featured 1,182 staff, an equal amount of men and women, all of whom had worked under both male and female bosses.
Georgina Read, co-founder of the organisation, said it should make no difference whether sales managers or other bosses are men or women.
"I think that is just a personal preference. A boss is a person who should always be approachable and it's important that all managers handle sensitive situations gracefully and discreetly," she explained.
It comes after global analyst Gartner said that the current IT sector, which encompasses sales recruitment, will only thrive if managers and workers are moving towards the same clear goals.
