Why People Quit Their Jobs:

People quit their jobs for many reasons. While 36% of people believe they should get paid better, there are many psychological reasons that people leave their jobs.

Uninspired/Uncaring Leaders

Over 34% of people say they leave their job because they feel uninspired by their boss or their supervisor does not care. Experts recommend bosses show empathy about the conditions their employees face at work and in the rest of their lives. Bosses may want to get mental health training allowing them to create a safe spot for their employees.

Lack of Meaningful Work

Employees want to know that what they are doing is essential. Experts recommend that bosses connect with their employees early and often. It is imperative that bosses give balanced feedback. If you are a supervisor who has trouble giving positive feedback, a mental health counselor can help you improve your technique.

Lack of concern for health and well-being

Employees want to know that their employers care about their physical and mental health. Creating a workplace mental health program can help. Statistics from the World Health Organization show that for every $1 an employer pays for a mental health program, they get $4 back in increased productivity.
