Reasons Why Employees Quit & How To Retain Them


Latest research reveals the biggest reasons of employees leaving their current employer, along with the successful ways to retain them.
According to a survey by SurveyMonkey, It has been figured out that the most popular cause for employees leaving a company is dormant in case of a job which is too long. Employees are likely to quit their employers rather than move on with a new role if offered.
Reasons Employees Stay:

  • Employee Satisfaction
  • Job advancement opportunities
  • Positive workplace culture
  • Employer values
  • Regular salary reviews

At an average, the cost of employee turnover is 21% of an employee’s annual salary. It seems like it’s cheaper to retain the existing talent instead of bringing in the new talent.
Employee turnover is costly for employers. Although you can’t control everything when it comes to turnover stated Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Chief Economist of Glassdoor confirming different ways to control the employee Stay/Go. Employers with an objective of Industrial growth offer competitive base pay with regular promotions and prior employees into new job roles which in turn retains them longer.
Moreover, this research tells recruiters to keep focus on bringing candidates in door. For example, focusing on those candidates who have been at their roles from quite a while without tenacious company culture could help boost recruiting efforts.
