3 Small Business Challenges and How to Manage Them

A recent article,   9 Things That Make Good Employees Quit by Dr. Travis Bradberry says managers tend to blame their employee turnover problems on everything, while disregarding the root of the matter: “People don’t leave jobs; they leave managers”.

Here are the reasons good employees leave your company.

1.Limited growth opportunity

God employees are zealous and creative, thus limiting their ability to expand because you’re at ease with the status quo, makes them bored and causes them to look for another job in plug and play offices that offers them career and professional advancement.

2.Selfish manager

It’s very exhausting working from 9-5 every day in an individual office space with someone who doesn’t care about anything other than sales and profits.

3.Hire or promote the wrong people

When you thoughtlessly hire or promote the wrong people, it’s a major cause of frustration for good employees working along with them. 

4.Increase workload without appropriate compensation

If you only increase the workload of your good employees without giving them appropriate compensation like promotions, title-changes or salary increase, they feel not valued and cause them to seek greener pastures.

5.Unappreciative manager

Managers who don’t show their appreciation for a job well done are difficult to work with.

6.Unfulfilled promises

You seem to become unreliable and not trustworthy when you’re untrue to your promises, thus make your best employees quit.
