Leaving a job is something we have all done, but did you know the top reasons employees jump ship?
Recruitment is one of the highest costs for many companies. It takes a long time to find the right people to fill open positions, and it’s often expensive to use the resources required. While looking for the best candidates, the company could be wasting money as long as the position remains unfilled. That’s why it’s so important to hold onto your good employees. If you want to stop them leaving, you need to understand why they choose to go.
Money is the motivating factor for a large percentage of employees. Many people enjoy their jobs, but even they wouldn’t stick around if asked to do it for free. When people feel like they’re not getting paid enough or their benefits package isn’t suitable, they’re likely to start looking for work elsewhere.
No Advancement Opportunities
For those who want to build a career, being stuck in the same position for years isn’t something they can deal with. They want to be able to advance and take on new responsibilities, preferably with a higher level of pay. If there’s nowhere for them to go, they may just turn to your competitors.
Bad Communication with Management
Solid communication between management and employees is vital if you want things to run smoothly in any organization. Without it, employees can become incredibly frustrated. They don’t know what is wanted from them, they’re unsure about making mistakes, and they might eventually disengage from their work. Good management is key to getting your employees to stick around.
