Did you know that an alarmingly high 33 percent of employees today intend to leave their jobs within the next few years? They give five reasons. Let's look at each and how you can lower the odds that your organization will account such statistics in the future.
Reason #1: They believe that staying is unwise for them in the long run. Leavers feel they have little opportunity for promotions, personal growth, or pay increases at their current organization. They therefore decide that they would be better off starting anew somewhere else.
Recommendation: Supervisors should be encouraged, and taught, to engage in frank, open discussions with employees about their long-term future with the organization. In some cases, employees may discover that they have more potential with the organization than they had thought. Telling an employee that he or she is personally valued by the organization can have a powerful, positive, long-term impact. It is often exactly what employees are starving to hear.
