It’s often said that employees don’t leave companies, they leave mangers. And to a certain extent, the Employee Engagement Report 2019 from The Predictive Index supports that idea. However, the survey of 3,000 U.S. employees across 20 industries used to compile the report suggests it’s not just poor managers that cause employees to take a new job. Here are the top 10 reasons employees hit the exit:
1. Senior leadership hasn’t communicated a vision for the future that’s motivating.
2. The company doesn’t put as much energy and investment into its people as it does into achieving business goals.
3. Senior leaders aren’t trusted.
4. They don’t feel fairly compensated for their work.
5. The company doesn’t have a promising future.
6. There’s a lack of opportunities for continued learning and development.
7. The company culture is weak.
8. They’re not excited about their day-to-day work.
9. Communication between employees, managers and senior leaders is not open and honest.
10. They don’t see advancement opportunities at the company.
