For every employee who leaves your company for higher pay or a better opportunity, there are many more for whom those “reasons” are just convenient explanations -- and the real impetus for their departure may never be brought to light.

Perhaps the real question is: Why are they looking for new jobs in the first place? According to more than 80% of employees, it’s not that there’s greener grass on the other side of the fence; it’s the preponderance of negative factors in their current workplaces -- from poor management practices to toxic workplace cultures -- that essentially push them toward the door.

The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave can help you identify the “push” factors in your organization, and mitigate or eliminate all of them. Incorporating data from surveys performed by the prestigious Saratoga Institute of more than 19,000 employees, this critical book examines in depth:

* How the employee and the employer travel a two-way street of expectation and reality; What are the warning signs of unmet expectations, and how can you best act on them?

* How incomplete talent strategies lead to employee-job mismatches; why a passion for matching must become a core competency in your organization.

* The ultimate cost of insufficient or ineffectual feedback; a five-step coaching process that builds strong and durable working relationships.

* How growth and advancement opportunities are not keeping pace with new career expectations; how to create opportunities and help your employees create their own.

* Best pay practices, rewards programs, and other initiatives for valuing and recognizing employees; understanding the emotional impact of compensation and recognition programs.

* The real toll that stress and overwork take on your employees—and on your bottom line; a look at how the best places to work in America got that way, even without high-profile or “newfangled” perks or benefits.

* How leadership and employees can (and must) build an environment of mutual trust and confidence; the three universal questions every employee needs answered, and how a disengaged workforce is the direct result of detached leadership

The key to becoming an Employer of Choice -- a workplace where top talent are knocking down the doors to get in -- is to develop the attitudes and implement the programs that address each of the above areas. The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave presents 54 Best Practices that will serve as the building blocks for a proactive approach to employee satisfaction, growth, and retention.
This books is about the Hidden, elusive motivations that cause capable employees to start questioning their decisions to join your company, start thinking of leaving, eventually disengage, and finally, leave.

Why Did I pick it up?
Somebody told me, if I read this book and reviewed it, they will reward me with cookies….

They lied…. =P

My 2 ¢ ♠♠♠♠♠If you are an employer, or as an employee (I mean, somebody is always the boss to their boss, and they themselves is an employee as well, am I right?), you should pick up a copy of this book. It would actually struck a cord to some and lighting light bulbs to some, as well as a good read and guidelines to the rest to the rest of its readers.

It includes scenarios of such situations where people resign from their work and give out reasons of why they do so, with of course… what, why who, when and how it came to be. From lack of enthusiasms, lack of interests, block from trying to progress, terrible working environment, lack of teamwork, lack of took and resources, to poor management, this book actually if read and applied, could actually  correct “mistakes” and giving tips and tricks to a better working environment.

This book is a full worth for anybody, working or not. Get it, read it, apply it, work it. This is a definite keeper. Thumbs up!

Librarian Muse
Wow... get a copy, or if you could, and budget works, um… get a few copies for circulation and a few for reference. If you are one of those work motivators, please, get this book. I recommend it 101%

p/s So… where’s my cookie?
