Moving on from a job

Moving on from a job

Does your boss think of you as a top performer? If so then you’re likely to be highly valued in the workplace, but does that mean you’ll stay with the same company?

A new survey from Robert Half has revealed that the majority of CFOs and Financial Directors are concerned about losing members of staff they value to other opportunities. Those working in publicly listed companies are the most concerned about staff resigning (73 per cent), followed by 64 per cent in the private sector and 60 per cent working in the public sector.

The expectation of many managers is that new employees will remain with the firm for an average of four years – however the research revealed that actually between nine per cent and 20 per cent of new hires leave within the first year. The reasons identified for people leaving roles so quickly were:

32% - inability to meet expectations

19% - Role did not meet expectations

18% - Poor fit with corporate culture

10% - Inability to integrate with team members

9% - Higher salary offered elsewhere

7% - Ineffective induction/onboarding process

3% - Restructuring or redundancies

3% - Ineffective staff management

2% - Other
