Why Employees Leave

As I wrote a few months ago, "People join an organization, but they leave a manager." In follow-up surveys of departing employees, companies are discovering that the main reason workers quit is because of a bad boss. Yet, surprisingly, most organizations fail to recognize the connection between poor leadership and employee turnover.

Matt Langdon referred me to this great post by Allan Webb, a management consultant who has worked with small-to-medium sized companies for thirty years. As Webb points out, today's workers are not looking to make lifetime commitments to employers. Most stay with a company for just a few years. Employers who figure out that good leadership and employee retention are inseparable will be more likely to convince workers to stay awhile longer.
