Why Are Your People Thinking of Leaving? Why Are They Leaving?
High staff turnover has a destabilizing effect on you and your team. You can quickly end up on a time-consuming recruitment "merry-go-round," and your remaining people have to pick up the slack.

People leave for many reasons, including changes in their personal circumstances. But they might be dissatisfied with your organization or even your management style. Our article, How to Survive High Team Turnover, explores six ways for handling this situation.

Creating job satisfaction within a positive working environment is one way to reduce team turnover, and you can discover how to do this with our video, Build a Positive Team in 4 Steps, and our article on Herzberg's Motivators and Hygiene Factors.
