Let’s face it, sometimes employers are clueless as to why people REALLY leave a company and that’s true whether they leave on good or on bad terms. Smart employees don’t want to burn any bridges, so they’ll often cover up the reason why they’re leaving. After all, they may still need a reference years down the road. Yet there are often good reasons for leaving a job.
While the message may not be that blunt, that’s sometimes how employees feel. The decent ones will give the obligatory two weeks’ notice, even though for most senior-level jobs or specialized skills there’s no way to really find a replacement, interview them, go through all the testing, hire and onboard a new employee in two weeks. But, still, courtesy counts and employers can sometimes figure out the reasons for quitting a job from the two-week notice.
Let’s just get straight to it. Here are the Top 10 list of reasons employees quit:
Have you taken a good look at these factors? Or do you have corporate blinders on? If you’re trying to reduce employee turnover at all, it’s better to take a good, hard look at your supervisors, culture and financial stability as well as opportunities for advancement and other factors, or you’ll be hearing more employees saying: Bye, Felicia!
These are just a few good reasons for leaving a job. For what other reasons do employees say “Bye, Felicia!?”
