Why Do Good Workers Quit?

When trying to understand what motivates good workers to quit or jump ship, there's an "extremely dramatic disconnect" between reality and what managers believe,

Seven root-cause reasons for employee turnover:

  1. The job or workplace not living up to expectations
  2. A mismatch between job and employee
  3. Too little coaching and feedback
  4. Too few opportunities for growth and advancement
  5. Feeling devalued and unrecognized
  6. Stress from overwork and work-life imbalance
  7. Loss of trust and confidence in senior leaders

In addition, there are at least six sub-reasons for leaving: unsatisfactory benefits; lack of work-life balance; inflexible work arrangements; excessive workloads; excessive travel demands; and the desire to spend more time with family.
