Why some good employees quit?
Some good employees quit due to many reasons. It can be not getting decent money for their work, bad treatment by superiors, a better offer from other companies and other matters.
It will also take time for a new person to become familiar with the job he was managing.
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” Henry Ford
How can encourage a good employee not to quit?
- Wish them all the best.
- Offer to give them great recommendations.
- Tell them how valuable they have been to the team, and how much you appreciate them.
- Tell them you will be happy to hire them back should they want to.
- Ask them if they have any advice for you and for your management style.
- Look in the mirror why they resigned. Perhaps you did not give them room to grow, support when they needed you, appreciation when it was due, freedom to choose the best solutions, time to listen to them.
- Continue to treat them as a valued employee. Just because someone found a better opportunity does not mean they are a traitor.
- Be happy for them, they deserve it.
