The top 10 reasons why people quit their jobs

A job consultant took some time to list the top 10 reasons why workers would quit their jobs, and the results are quite stunning. Check by yourself :

  • Management demands that one person do the jobs of two or more people, resulting in longer days and weekend work.
  • Management cuts back on administrative help, forcing professional workers to use their time copying, stapling, collating, filing and other clerical duties.
  • Management puts a freeze on raises and promotions, when an employee can easily find a job earning 20-30 percent more somewhere else.
  • Management doesn’t allow the rank and file to make decisions or allow them pride of ownership. A visitor to my website E-mailed me a message that said, “Forget about the “professional” decisions—how about when you can’t even select the company’s holiday card without the President rejecting it for one of his own taste?”
  • Management constantly reorganizes, shuffles people around, and changes direction constantly.
  • Management doesn’t have or take the time to clarify goals and decisions. Therefore, it rejects work after it was completed, damaging the morale and esteem of those who prepared it.
  • Management shows favoritism and gives some workers better offices, trips to conferences, etc.
  • Management relocates the offices to another location, forcing employees to quit or double their commute.
  • Management promotes someone who lacks training and/or necessary experience to supervisor, alienating staff and driving away good employees.
  • Management creates a rigid structure and then allows departments to compete against each other while at the same time preaching teamwork and cooperation.

Notice some pattern here ? Management. Doh, I guess that has to hurt a bit some of the managers out there ! Be sure to read the original article.
