These are the three main reasons why employees quit their jobs.

1. Lack of opportunity

When people can put their skills and abilities to use in the jobs they’re doing, they tend to feel a sense of usefulness, self-confidence, and accomplishment. Employees are happier if they’re engaged in activities at which they are good that exercise their skills and abilities even more.

People want to develop their skills, and if a job doesn’t give them the ability to do that, they will start looking for one that offers it. This same applies to opportunities; if a workplace does not offer opportunities for growth and advancement, employees will go where they can find them.

People want to apply their knowledge and improve at what they’re doing. They’re looking for a challenge, and if they feel that their skills are not being challenged, they will feel unfulfilled. It’s like a pilot who loves flying but isn’t able to fly.

Remember: People are looking for fulfillment, purpose, and growth in their job.


2. A toxic workplace or company culture

In an ideal workplace, everyone behaves with courtesy and colleagues complement one another. Bosses even check up on staff occasionally and are interested in what’s going on in their personal lives.

However, as we all know, there is no ideal workplace, and personalities do not always blend so seamlessly. In every organization, some occasional clashes, interpersonal conflicts, office gossip, cunning workers, sly bosses, attention-seeking colleagues, and inconsiderate co-workers could appear, and any of those could turn into the reason that workers consider leaving a job.

One of the problems could be inter-office competition. Even if a workplace is generous, providing flexible hours and generous vacation, a workplace filled with competitors might actually hinder workers from making full use of the benefits available to them. Employees may feel that making use of them by, for example, scheduling vacations, could get them penalized, causing them to be at a competitive disadvantage and making them feel dissatisfied.

Company culture can vary from department to department and even from manager to manager, so leaders in every company need to be consistent in building the same culture throughout the entire organization.


3. A better salary and financial stability

Money matters, after all, everyone has to think about their personal finances when he or she decides which organization he or she wants to work for.

Because of all of that, money is also a reason why employees leave their jobs. If a new job offers just a small raise, people do not care; if you offer them a significantly higher wage, you will get their attention.
