Why good folks leave jobs–reason #5: Workers feel devalued and unrecognized.

17 Sep

Advice for job seekers:

My friend Leigh Branham published a great book on why good employees leave. The book is based on his study of thousands of people who left their employer.

Any of you suffering out there from too much recognition?

Of course not.

Although we might jest about this, the research is clear—if employees are not appreciated, they will find a place where they are valued and recognized.

Recognition can certainly come in salary and benefits, but it’s much more than that. To the degree you can, learn about how prospective employers value employees. Are their formal programs? Informal ones? Do managers truly value employees?

People will put up with a lot, but they won’t put up with being ignored and devalued. Don’t put yourself in an environment where they take you for granted—you deserve better.
