Ouch. That's a lot of aggravation for businesses isn't it? Especially if those employees are particularly valuable/actually decent at their jobs. According to this article on HR Grapevine, if you're a manager of people, you only have yourself to blame for their departure from your company! Poor management is the primary reason for workers who either leave or seek to leave their jobs and this article has the numbers to back it:
Nearly half of workers across the world plan to leave their current organisation by next year, according to a survey across 14 countries by Dale Carnegie Training. 29% of workers plan to look for a new job within the next year, and 16% are currently looking for a new job. Just 22% plan to stay in their current workplace on a long-term basis. According to the study, poor management was a primary reason for employees leaving. Researchers found that an employee is almost ten times more likely to be very satisfied with their job when they are led by someone they feel is honest and trustworthy.
