Employees are the lifeblood of any business, They are the people working at the coalface to ensure that all of your targets are met and your objectives achieved. 

If you work hard to recruit and hire the best employees you can find in your industry, the last thing you want is to drive them away, but so many business owners do so many things that can and will cause employees to quit.

If you don’t want that to happen within your business, then take a look at these 4 things that will make employees quit, and avoid doing them in your company to keep your employees happy and to keep them working for you:

1. Setting impossible goals

When you run a business,m it is really important that you set targets and have goals for your employees to reach as this will help to keep them motivated and help to ensure your business is always moving forward.

However, it would be a big mistake to set targets that ate too difficult to achieve because this will just cause staff to become demoralized, and ultimately burnt out, They will be unhappy and they will leave for a company that is more realistic about what can be achieved.

2. Unsafe practices

If you ask your employees to do anything that would be deemed unsafe, then not only might you end up losing them to a company that cares about health and safety, but you may also end up paying them damages in a personal injury lawsuit. As an employer, you are responsible for your staff’s safety, so take it very seriously if you don’t want to lose them, and potentially even lose your business.

3. Wasting their time

If you are someone who schedules a meeting just to let the staff know the printer has run out of ink, you could be in for trouble. Sometimes, meetings are necessary, but often they are not, and if you schedule too many of them to the detriment of your employees’ ability to do their work in a timely fashion, then they will start to get samoyed at the waste of their timer and they will look for a new position where they can get on with things as efficiently as possible.

4. Not challenging them

If you always assign tasks to your staff that are too easy for them, too boring for them, or not even worth doing at all (you’d be surprised how common that is) they will get bored, and lacking any challenges, they will look to find new opportunities where they can really showcase their skills.

You should assess every employee for their skills and ability and aim to match them with tasks that are suitably challenging for them to keep them with you.

If you are currently doing any of the above, stop now and put new practices into place, and if you are not, then stay vigilant so that you do not ever end up driving your employees away in any of the above ways.
