Why Do Workers Quit?

Why Do Workers Quit?

I recently read an article on LinkedIn, The Real Reason Workers Quit Their Jobs, and decided to survey my team at Risch Results. Every day we work hard to ensure the talent we find for our clients not only has the necessary skill set and experience for the position, but also a passion for the work. Given this mission, it was important for me to make sure I’m tailoring jobs to my own employee’s passions, talents and work-life priorities.

I asked everyone on the team to tell me what they like best and least about their job. I learned that my lead recruiter felt she was getting plenty of training opportunities, but wanted more customer-facing time; my marketing director enjoys helping with the research process, sourcing and interviewing candidates and my assistant recruiter likes finding new ways to source for unique talent. This is important feedback and allows me to ensure my team has opportunities to develop professionally and to do what they love!

What do your employees like most about their jobs? We’d love to hear from you!
