5 Ways You Are Forcing Your Employees To Call It Quit!

Today, employees seek more than just a fat paycheck and millennials aka Gen Y people lead the race here.

Other factors that a majority of employees seek are job security and a trustworthy leader, who they can look up to. Failing to meet these requirements, an employee would simply quit the company.

Good leaders are able to successfully retain trust, confidence and respect of their subordinates. They are those, who are capable of gently leading by example and also very capable of delegating tasks.

So here are 5 ways common habits of bosses that end up showing the door to employees:

     1. Micromanage!

Companies often invest a lot of time, money and interest towards recruiting skilled and talented employees. After which, a lot of time, money and energy is spent in training these employees to give their best. Unfortunately, often leaders fail to completely trust their employees to perform their assigned duties as a result of which, they often find themselves micromanaging the work of their employees. It would most likely be very unprofessional and inefficient to simultaneously micromanage an employee’s work.

     2. You could have done a better job!

A majority of times, leaders and managers would often tell their employees that they could have done a much better job. Although, employees would just simply yearn to hear those two golden words, ‘Good job’ and often give their best to hear those words from a leader they respect. However failing to hear that would often lead to ill-feelings like discouragement and lack of self-confidence thus, causing the employee to feel disheartened.

     3. Not providing the right tools

It would be such a travesty for an employee with a college degree and adequate experience, who is expected to be productive, but is not provided with the right set of tools. For instance, not arming your HR department with a cutting-edge HR software would make them unproductive and inefficient in today’s fast-paced business ecosystem.

     4. Playing the favourite game

That’s right! Favouritism is the easiest way to shove your employees away to other companies. People would often forget whatever you said and whatever you did, but they would never forget how you made them feel.

     5. Meeting, Meetings and Meetings!

How on earth could you possibly expect results from your employees if they are always attending meetings and not actually having any time to work and be productive? Thus, it might be a good idea to cut down on the number of meetings and instead encourage some real work.

Conclusion

In conclusion, besides paycheck, employees also look for their leaders to give them due credit for their hard work and dedication that show towards their work and the organisation.
