Are you currently a manager or have been in the past? If you answered yes, I don’t need explain just how stressful your position can get. One of the most difficult aspects to deal with are employees who decide to move on. In many cases, you are held responsible for their exit. Here are three reasons as to why they leave according to a Florida State University study.
1. You don’t communicate your goals: It’s quite difficult for employees to meet your expectations when they have no idea what to expect.
2. You have failed to make a personal connection: Managers are often bogged down by the everyday grind and there’s not a lot of time for small talk. But if you don’t spend any time interacting one-on-one, the employee won’t feel like a crucial part of the company.
3. You have created a negative company culture: A manager should be willing to take responsibility when things go wrong. They should also resist the urge to criticize employees in front of the rest of the team. This is a sure fire way to literally suck the life out of your workforce.
