Reason why people quit their jobs

     More than half of people quit their jobs because they are unhappy at work – not because they want more money - according to a new survey by Benchmark.

The survey found that rather than quitting over low pay, the majority of people hand in their notice because they don’t have faith in their boss, feel unappreciated and are disengaged in their work.

The survey included over 3,000 employees and found over 22% left their last job due to lack of faith in the leadership team.

19% quit because they felt “unappreciated” while another 19% left because they felt “disengaged and unmotivated.”

Out of the 3000 employees, 13% felt a lack of financial rewards.

This survey also found 19% of people describe their job as a “dead end”. Only 25% of people think they have a “perfect” job.

Other reasons for employees leaving were that they were made redundant (9.68%), they clashed with colleagues (3.23%) and that they had had poor relationships with their line manager (3.23%).

This surveys results show that we need to look after our employees. Ensure they feel appreciated and acknowledge their accomplishments. Employers need to give them reasons to feel motivated and be positive towards them which shall encourage their engagement and motivation. Last but by no means least, try to create work bonds and professional relationships with employee so they feel more involved and appreciated.
