Poor Management Is a Major Cause of Turnover

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Technological and cultural shifts are keeping organizations on their heels. To keep up, remain competitive, and, most importantly, retain talented workers, workplaces need strong leadership. According to new research from Udemy, low unemployment levels and nagging skills gaps have led to an extremely competitive hiring environment. Qualified workers know they have numerous opportunities and can leave a company if they aren’t happy. Unfortunately, many are doing just that, and the main reason for their departure is poor leadership. Of the 1,000 full-time U.S.-based employees surveyed, almost half said they have left a job in the past due to poor management. Over half said they felt managers at their company were promoted to positions they weren’t prepared for, and 60 percent said that managers need more training. "In today's competitive hiring market, employees are looking for companies where they can fulfill their potential, build careers, and find meaning in their work," Darren Shimkus, general manager for Udemy for Business, said in a statement. "Our new study uncovers underlying issues that, if left unchecked, can lead to frustrated workers and employee attrition. Employers should invest in talent development, from onboarding to leadership training, and make all of these resources available to everyone in the organization."

This isn't surprising, as many employees will stay in a role because they respect and like their leader's management style. It also explains why some employees are willing to follow their leaders when the leader recognizes an opportunity to move on, and they have the capacity to make hiring decisions. I also think there's a difference between managing and leading. Strong leaders recognize the difference.
Agreed Allison!
