The Number 1 Reason Employees Leave

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

Research has shown that the number one reason employees choose to leave an organization is lack of growth opportunities. While employees may not leave right away, they will become emotionally disconnected from the organization. When employees become disengaged, their efficiency and productivity decrease dramatically. 

What can you do to overcome this industry-wide challenge? Sue Kaiden, manager of ATD’s Career Development Community of Practice, interviews Julie Winkle-Giulioni, co-author of Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Employees Want. During the interview, Winkle-Giulioni covers questions including:

  • What are the current challenges with career development? 
  • Are there generation differences in the type of career development employees look for? 
  • What can individual managers do to help employees develop their careers?

To hear the full interview, check out the latest podcast from the Career Development Community, “Develop Me or I’m History.”
