Why do employees QUIT their job?
Employees have different personalities, goals and needs — and it’s not always easy to balance business human resources with your general operations. Taking this into consideration, there are common reasons why employees quit.
1. A lack of appreciation
One of the primary reasons why employees quit is because they feel underappreciated and undervalued.
2. Low pay
Paying people less costs less money. However, low wages is another reason why employees quit — and it could end up costing your business more in the long run.
3. Wanting to work remotely
The desire to work remotely has been a growing employee trend over the last decade, popular especially in the tech and digital sectors where a laptop with stable wi-fi connection can complete most of the day’s tasks. The remote-working conversation typically aligns with a desire to achieve a greater work-life balance.
4. No growth opportunities
Even in a small business, employees need the opportunity to grow. It’s hard for anyone to be stuck in the same place for a long period of time. If an employee has been doing the same job for years without any opportunity for growth and change, they’re going to seek that growth and change at another organization.
