Employees do not leave an organization without any significant reason. There are certain circumstances that lead to their leaving the organization. The most common reasons can be:
- Job is not what the employee expected to be: Sometimes the job responsibilities don’t come out to be same as expected by the candidates. Unexpected job responsibilities lead to job dissatisfaction.
- Job and person mismatch: A candidate may be fit to do a certain type of job which matches his personality. If he is given a job which mismatches his personality, then he won’t be able to perform it well and will try to find out reasons to leave the job.
- No growth opportunities: No or less learning and growth opportunities in the current job will make candidate’s job and career stagnant.
- Lack of appreciation: If the work is not appreciated by the supervisor, the employee feels de-motivated and loses interest in job.
- Lack of trust and support in coworkers, seniors and management: Trust is the most important factor that is required for an individual to stay in the job. Non-supportive coworkers, seniors and management can make office environment unfriendly and difficult to work in.
- Stress from overworks and work life imbalance: Job stress can lead to work life imbalance which ultimately many times lead to employee leaving the organization.
- Compensation: Better compensation packages being offered by other companies may attract employees towards themselves.
- New job offer: An attractive job offer which an employee thinks is good for him with respect to job responsibility, compensation, growth and learning etc. can lead an employee to leave the organization.
