Why Are Your Employees Leaving?
Are you losing Employees? Putting it down to “just didn’t belong or only interested in money”? Maybe not…
Here’s a link to a Recruiter I follow – Greg Savage – a long time Sydney Australia Recruiter. I’ve danced around this issue in a couple of blogs but Greg has some pretty strong opinions about why your employees are walking out the door!
Here’s his most recent blog:
People Don’t Leave Companies! They Leave Leaders!
The article got such a huge response it crashed his blog.
I think he’s right.
We see some people dance around saying they are leaving for money, some say for more career advancement. I guess the question is – aren’t these reasons part of the leadership question too?
Money is not the top reason employees stay. The reasons why employees stay is for Recognition, Respect and Appreciation for a job they do well. When employees don’t feel respected, not even money will keep them there for long.
What do you think? I’d like to know!
