Learning pioneers, Skillsoft, commissioned research which has revealed that personal issues including stress are the main reasons people want to change jobs.
The poll of CEO’s suggests that reasons for employees wanting to leave go beyond pay and progression, with undisclosed ‘personal issues’ having more of an effect on happiness in role than managers may realise. Kevin Young, general manager of EMEA at Skillsoft, said: “Many managers only find out an employee is unhappy in their role and the reasons for that on the day they leave or hand their notice in. By this time it is often too late to rectify the situation and do anything to keep a valued member of staff … By ensuring that each employee has their own, tailored training programme and an opportunity to voice any concerns, employers can feel that they are giving staff every opportunity to succeed, despite other personal pressures they may be under.”
