Have you ever quit your job?
Just grabbed your things and walked out the door, not looking back? Web Watch worked with one such person who, after a group meeting was over where they didn’t seem to agree with what was said, went back to their desk, left their access card, and walked out – not saying a word to anyone.
It was certainly an odd way to go for those who witnessed it.
So it does come down the the real reason why you decide to quit.
Over 50% OF THOSE WHO QUIT THEIR JOBS did so because they were unhappy with their work, not because they weren’t making enough money.
Makes sense. There’s only so much happiness that money can buy, and if you’re not happy at work, why bother being there?
Some other findings from the survey:
- 22% didn’t believe in the leadership
- 19% didn’t feel appreciated
- 19% were unmotivated
- 13% were not compensated enough
