Why Good Employee Leave? David W Richard

A study came up with the surprising finding: If you're loosing good people, look to their immediate supervisors. More than any other single reason, he is the reason people stay and thrive in organization. And he's the reason why they quit, talking their knowledge, experience and contacts with them. Often, straight to the competition.

"People leave managers not companies" write the authors Marcus Buckinggham and Curt Coffman " So much money has been thrown at the challenges of keeping good people-in the form of better pay, better perks and better training-when in the end, turnover is mostly a manager issue."

If you have a turnover problem, look first to your managers and supervisors.

Beyond a point, an employee's primary need has less to do with money, and more to do with how he's treated and how valued he feels. Much depends directly on the immediate manager.

I found this in a post while scrolling through FB last night. Since we have had this new supervisor we have had 11 people leave since August of 2017. Our census has gone down, morale is at an all time low. Funny how the higher ups always post articles and what books to read but leave out literature like this. Funny how they are all about numbers but when it takes a dive are not capable of looking right in front of them of the blatant and obvious problem. Just because your book smart does not make you an effective leader. Common sense, attitude and most importantly personality is the major parts, anyone can learn how to do their job and day to day tasks, but you can’t learn the intangibles.

Research the "Dunning-Kruger Effect." In a nutshell, it was a study that confirmed that stupid and incompetent people are too stupid and incompetent to realize that they are stupid and incompetent.

This is so true it's scary, this is exactly the reason I want to leave my work place, the managers are bullies, they treat all their staff like crap, they are rude, unreasonable, never polite,yell at us in front of customers, there is too many things to say, when I do finally leave I'm going to put this up in the staff room for all to see, thank you

I find this very true in the education field. You have principals and central office people who have not a clue turning the environment toxic.

A good point tarnished by a chauvinistic view on women in leadership.

I totally agree... I've seen cases when really good and experienced people leave the company (a total waste of talent and expertise) because of micro managers and team leads who seem to lack good interpersonal skills. While money and promotion is a big factor, it is not the only reason for people to stay in their current jobs-- the feeling of self worth, and to be respected and valued by your colleagues specially ur immediate supervisors are among major reasons why some people remain and excel in their jobs.

While the immediate supervisor is a big part of it, money is an important part as well. I probably would hang around at my current employer longer if I wasn't being offered a 35% pay raise with another company. As others have commented on here, this guys needs some remedial coursework on spelling, and when mentioning a study, please cite the study, otherwise the study is just some BS you made up.

It would mean a lot more to me if there weren't so many spelling errors.

I totally agree with this. Productive employees are those who feel valued and appreciated. If you are am effective leader, employees will understand when things don't go their way. They will understand it is part of the business as a whole and not your inability to lead. Treat employees as your most valued assets and they will thrive.
