Why Resigned? ; 3 most Important Reasons

Said topic is a very common and important question; arrives when anyone decided to resign or depart from the company.

Only three reasons are behind the scene:

First – Family and Location

Second - Cultural Behavior of Company

Third – Seniors or Reporting Managers

3. Let’s begin with Third one first. Most of 80% cases resigned due to behavior issues of their seniors or Reporting Managers,

2. And rare cases 10% due to second one cause. Every Good and Employee empowered Company having policies and procedures to perform best of best; it’s all about Company Culture,

1. And rare of rarest cases 10% are due to cause of Family and Location issues. Lots of good companies are love and believe to relocate their employees at their home locations.

Now, the gap is almost clear.

Instead of high attrition rate companies are required to manage their employees with proper staff engagement activities; jointly with their colleagues, seniors and reporting managers.

“Good points - Seniors or Reporting Managers are having their high level of confidence, energy and thought process. Boss is always right, where a concept makes seniors to be behaved like a boss. They are having their own reputation in front of staff, colleagues and Company.”

But a soft corner always to be there for their Junior, colleagues and employees. Most of times junior employees are hesitate to ask repeated questions, doubts and concept to their reporting managers due to their behaviors like looking sense, talking sense, sense of answering the doubts or questions, shouting in front of staff etc. Seniors has to be understood that performance is a team work and same will be Zero if junior team will not work or not perform.

Seniors should be proactively participating and to be answered well to their junior employees and colleagues for their any doubts or questions related to assigned work or task.

Good time has to be spending with vertical junior employees or colleagues. Junior will perform too actively if feel independent and familiar work environment.

May be Junior will be Boss if teach by a Boss. So behavior must be like a Boss not as annoyed.

A matured perfect bonding plays a biggest role with employees after Success.

A Boss who creates another Boss.

Dear Anonymous...

It is pertinently not the is beyond this three and the tolerance of the limit for sustainability and growth ...

1) When an organisation have the one at the helm who could not take the decisions and the junior certainly suffer, there is no question of remedy...The ill educated not only malign the junior and make his/her life hapless...

2) Sexual harassment, there is no cap on this issue, either senior or junior both become a victim/victimise ... survival at the fathom of the issue will become a thin line and life .....

3) The relatives of the boss, wife, brothers/sisters and others very close to the organisation even though they are not actually related to the organisation the sufferer knows the truth and wait for a relief ...

4) When an organisation fails to nourish the inner talent and worshiping the outer Goddess/God you cannot expect an accountable/real contributor to stay in the organisation ...

5) The humiliation ....

6) One who knows the real picture certainly create an ambient atmosphere and another goes, certainly have some bad or good impacts ... growth goes accordingly ...

These are not and really cannot be follows ...

best of luck .......In a paranthesis, numbers can be limited and not the human nature/attitude ...

An unhappy work atmosphere and poor managers are among the most important reasons why employees quit.
In such organisations,the employees feels totally unappreciated and looses his motivation to continue.
The person looks around for jobs and leaves.
Organisation should try and give a level field for people to work and a supportive hand in the work.
This will make employees stay back and contribute to growth of the company.

I really agree with you guys.When the work atmosphere is not encouraging for the junior level employees to develop their skills and there is no appreciation for their inputs then these employees start to look elsewhere for better prospects.Many a time it is the middle level managers who do not know how to treat their juniors due to their own insecurities and lack of confidence.It is the top management who should take a hand to create and implement policies whereby all new as well as junior employees are nurtured and encouraged to express their talents so that they can be utilised in a capacity which will bring out the best in them.In the long run it is the company which will benefit.'Every man/woman is worthy of their wages'.Keeping this in mind each and every ones contribution,no matter how small,should be recognised and appreciated.

""Many a time it is the middle level managers who do not know how to treat their juniors due to their own insecurities and lack of confidence.""
This is very true.
I have personally seen cases where manager is worried abut the smartness and quick junior and feels insecure that junior will outshine.
Managers should have friendly approach while being professional and nurture new comers to rise to their potential.
A simile can be drawn with the story from Holy Mahabharata -Drona and Eklavya.
But this a story of human frailties and such things do happen.Weak and jealous managers are also a part of the management story as much as brilliant juniors and vice versa.
Highermanagement needs to keep an eye on exits and monitor from time to time.

From India, Pune
The basic reason I would say is people not giving respect to their fellow human beings. The reasons we often identify for people leaving organizations are an offshoot of the aforementioned behaviour. Arrogance and sycophancy are viral, especially when they emanate from the senior management. Everyone is intelligent and today there are options around. No amount of gimmicks and oratory skills can be a substitute for integrity and fairness.

For all these problems, the root cause is human relations.. Like two rotating parts of a machinery or equipment, when two people or more interact, there will be certain about of friction. For machinery, you have lubricants.. For human beings, we have quiet few options like training on all employees on Transactional Analysis, Inter-personal Skills, Open channels of communication - Bottom to top, , top to bottom, diagonal, vertical, horizontal.... this kind of open communication, without ego issues, lack of role clarity, goal clarity et al, leads to such problems. If a junior turns out to be smart, the team leader or manager will immediately get wounded and he will try to smother the guy for the simple reason that he is a smart worker. These things are universal and common in human beings. By the time they attain mental maturity, it might be too late to mend himself or herself...
So, proper training is essential for such people....

From India
I think the most common reason is financial reasons: .... A job offering better money.
Second could be personal reasons: Personal growth, work-capacity ratio expectations, 'Struggle-development-settlement-retirement' worklife stages, etc.
Third could be surroundings: Behaviour of compnay / supervisors, & Family / location preferences.
I agree it does not match the anology being discussed above, but this is my thinking..... Open for further brainstorming....
