People Don’t Leave Jobs; They Leave Managers

One of the most costly and disruptive thing in business is when good employees leave. Managers tend to blame high staff turnover on anything and everything whilst ignoring the main issue.

Fact is, people don’t leave jobs; they leave managers.

However, steps can be taken in order to avoid this happening. All that is needed is a new perspective and some extra managerial effort.

In order to understand how to foster and support our best employees, we must first understand the negative behaviours managers have that turn, good employees away.

It is often very tempting to over-work your best people as managers want the job done right.
