Three reasons why the best employees leave their companies

19062842_SThink people switch jobs primarily to earn more money? Think again. A Gallup study released earlier this year found that about 50% of 7,200 adults surveyed left a job “to get away from their manager.” Other surveys show that money is often the second, third or fourth most important reason for a job switch, but not No. 1. Surprised?

Human resources professionals say it’s no surprise to them that people switch jobs most often for reasons unrelated to their pay rate. Here are three top reasons why even the best employees quit their jobs:

Lack of recognition by their manager. If your managers don’t recognize your achievements or reward you for going the extra mile, then what’s the point? Everyone wants to feel appreciated and valued, and even the most simple ‘thank you’ can speak volumes.

Too much work. The stress of hitting deadlines and constantly adding things to your growing to-do list can really wear a person down. Managers sometimes fail to realize that just because a person can do extra work doesn’t mean that they should. It can start to feel like you’re being punished for doing your job.

The wrong people are being hired and promoted. When unqualified people are hired to do a job that’s similar to yours, it can feel like a slap in the face. You worked hard to get where you are and less-than-qualified peers can devalue your position. Watching others be promoted and recognized for their service while you’re still where you started isn’t a good feeling, and it’s enough to send anyone looking for better opportunities.
