Ways to lose a valuable employee

valuable employeeSince the start of the Recession in 2007, the economy has favored the employer. Despite fears regarding the economy and jobs, valuable employees are still giving 100% to their jobs. People are happy to have employment. However, the level of appreciation isn’t the same. When the economy shifts back into the employees’ favor, employees may start looking for better jobs. High turnover will always hurt an organization. To avoid high turnover, employers need to be mindful of what causes employees to leave.

These are some reasons an employer may lose a valuable employee:

  • Pay is low
  • No raise or very little
  • Micro-managing managers
  • Heavily mismanaged organization
  • No positive feedback
  • No growth – dead-end job
  • No security
  • Hours are inflexible
  • Managers are not friendly – draconian
  • The commute is long.
  • Overworked
  • An employer fails to have adequate free parking.
  • High-school atmosphere
  • Heavy turnover
  • Little to no training
  • Contradicting rules and/or procedures
