Who has the body of England skipper David Beckham, the face of Hollywood babe magnet George Clooney, the flowing locks of French international David Ginola, the dress sense of Jack Dee and the humour of Friday night favourite Graham Norton? The answer: the ideal boss.

In a survey 830 visitors to the Capital Incentives website were asked to pick attributes from six male and female celebrities to create a caricature of their ideal boss. Surprisingly, all the attributes were male.

On a more serious note, those surveyed, who included nearly 100 from the insurance industry, said fair treatment was valued higher than a good salary - although many might argue the two go hand in hand.

And 48% of respondents said Richard Branson would be their perfect employer. That is despite Branson's golden boy image taking a pounding from Tom Bower's damning biography.
