According to this week’s Huffington Post, there are at least nine reasons companies will see some of their best employees walk out the door in 2016. Highlights include being overworked, being undervalued, creative stagnation and an overall lack of intellectual stimulation.
Sounds depressing, right? But it doesn’t have to be this way.
As more companies recognize the issues that commonly trigger the “I QUIT” hot button, they are opting for more open discussions about burnout and overall company culture. It’s important for managers to take the lead here, since one of the most common traits top performers share is that they rarely ask for help when they start burning out.
By embracing these sometimes difficult conversations and showing that they value honest feedback from their best employees, good companies can go a long way toward reducing the unhappiness and dissatisfaction that may have built up over the previous year.
Of course, there are some employers who just don’t seem to care, and others who never act on the mountains of feedback they’ve already received from their best employees, leading them to lose faith and look elsewhere for fulfillment.
So, should you stay or should you go? Only you will know when it’s truly time to make a job change. Thankfully, there’s a wealth of awesome companies and opportunities available all across Northeast Ohio. To view some of these open positions, check out the JumpStart job board.
