Causes of talent departure
You might think you know why employees have left your company in the past, based on the reasons they gave you for leaving at the time. But do you really know the cause of why talented employees leave? Some of these reasons are probably highly specific to your organization or department. To prevent good talent from leaving, it’s vital to discover what the reasons are.
Employees may provide one of many possible reasons for their departures. They might have personal commitments that have little to do with the job itself. Or they may leave because of external, industry- specific pressures, or because of internal problems with your department.
Sometimes the reasons employees leave are personal and have little to do with your organization. They might have family obligations that conflict with their jobs or transportation problems, or simply want to change careers.
Some reasons are external ones. New employees could receive counter-offers from their former employers, for example. Or other companies may offer your employees jobs with higher salaries or more career advancement opportunities.
A set of factors associated with your organization could make employees leave. They might dislike the work environment in your organization or find the work they’re doing stressful.
They may have problems with their supervisors or working hours, feel unappreciated, or feel that they’re not fairly rewarded for their contributions. They may also feel they’re not allowed enough independence or flexibility in their day-to-day work.
