Why Do People Leave Jobs?
People leave jobs for a host of reasons. Some of these are out of the control of the employer and are usually related to life events, such as moving house, having children or returning to education.
However, most reasons that lead to employees deciding to look for a new job, or simply quit an existing one, are under the control of the employer. Work-life balance, company culture, benefits and pay, office environment and leadership issues all play a part in motivating people to leave a job, and are all factors that are under the control of the employer.
