In 2009, we raised the flag on the economic impact of maintaining a self-motivated staff. We highlighted an employee survey, which stated that 55% of employees were planning to leave their current employers when the recession was over. It’s clear that they weren’t happy with the current management techniques. And, unfortunately, projects weren’t going to be postponed or stopped because over half of the staff left.
This survey proved to be right on target. The US Department of Labor generates the Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLT) Report. It shows the reasons (i.e. layoffs, retirements, and quits), that employees left their jobs. The number of “quits” or voluntary terminations, as percentage of total separations, has increased since 2009 to about 53% in 2012. The future is here!!!
