No one wants to lose a top employee, but some business owners and managers may be doing things that have their best workers looking for opportunities elsewhere.
Do you give employees more assignments because they’re good at them? Do you tolerate mediocre work from their peers? Could your top workers feel stifled by unnecessary rules and restrictions?
Mike Wood, the founder of the online marketing agency Legalmorning.com, says if a good employee leaves, you may have contributed to the reasons he or she left without even realizing it.
“My experience as both an employee and a manager has taught me a few things that will undoubtedly chase away your best employees if you’re not careful,” Wood writes for the news website AllBusiness.com.
