8 Reasons Your Best Employees are Leaving and How to Keep Them

 

 

 

According to Forbes, here are THE TOP 8 REASONS YOUR BEST PEOPLE ARE LEAVING AND HOW TO KEEP THEM:

 

1. You’ve overloaded your best people with too many responsibilities.  It’s time to take a fresh look at who’s doing what in your group and probably redistribute how work is getting done on the team.  Your best people need to be doing higher level stuff, not just getting lower level stuff done.  Your best people will quit if they’re just continuing to be asked to do the same boring stuff years later.

2. You’re a micro-manager.  Your worst people are probably happy for you to tell them what to do constantly.  But your best people will be driven up the wall by this tendency.  They want to know you give them a task and then enough rope to let them do it rather than doing it for them.

3. You’re never around. Lots of bosses protest that they have an “open door policy” for their people to come in and talk with them whenever they need to.  But, if you’re never, that’s not going to invite a lot of your staff to come in and shoot the breeze with you.
