According to a recent Forbes article (which I’ve linked below), more Americans are quitting their jobs today than at any point in the past five years. In fact, in March 2014 alone, more than 2.475 million Americans quit their jobs — and that number has been steadily increasing ever since. At the same time, people today are more confident in their job abilities than ever before. So what’s causing them to quit?
As this article argues, some jobs are simply more “quitable” than others. While some positions are sought after (and usually hard to get), others are easily dropped the moment something better comes along. Surprisingly, it’s not the long hours or low wages that drive those employees away — in fact, even the number one most quitable industry offers competitive salaries and flexible hours. The fact of the matter is, there’s often an underlying reason that employees choose to take a different job, and it’s not what you think!
30 million employees quit their jobs each year, and most of them seem to agree with the old saying, “people quit their bosses, not their jobs.” (It’s widely agreed that a bad boss is the number one reason for turnover). Unfortunately, this means that you could be the very thing that’s driving your best employees away. So, how do you ensure that your employees are happy to stay? Read on to find out.
We all know that company culture is a pivotal part of any employee-retention strategy. But sales culture is just as important. That being said, a sales force culture assessment conducted by Sales Benchmark Index determined that the number one reason a salesperson quits is a lack of career development — not broken relationships with the boss. Check out this article to determine how your sales culture ranks — and learn the secret to keeping your top sales reps around.
