Do you remember the last time you were on a job search?
Looking for a job can be a painstaking process. Further, the current state of the economy makes for a highly competitive environment without much return.
What would have to occur for an employee to quit their new job?
Approximately 89% of managers believe that employees leave their jobs for more money. However, approximately 88% of employees said they left their jobs for reasons other than money.
This is a significant disparity between management’s perceptions and the reality.
What causes an employee to leave?
- Employee does not respect or like their managers
- The job or environment is not what the employee expected
- The Employee is not the right fit for the role
- Employee does not receive coaching and feedback on their performance
- Employee does not believe there are enough opportunities for growth and advancement
- Employee feels devalued or that their contributions are not recognized
- Employee is unable to attain or maintain a stress-free, work- life balance (Branham, 2005)
Last but not least, the employee does not feel like a welcomed part of the team. Employees who are not properly socialized and acclimated to the company’s culture are more likely to quit (Ashforth & Saks, 1995).
