1. Ignoring the efforts and contributions
Employees are contributing significantly towards the development of your workplace. In most of the instances, they tend to go beyond limits with the intention of ensuring a quality outcome. Unfortunately, managers tend to ignore the efforts and contributions made by them. As a result, those employees tend to quit work that they do. As a manager, it is important to praise the employees for all hard work done by them. Then you will be able to convince them to retain and contribute towards the development of the company.
2. Increased workload
According to recent experiments, it has been identified that increased workload is the most prominent reasons why employees tend to quit. Managers are only concerned about pleasing clients and getting more work delivered to them at the end of the day. In such a situation, more work would be put on employees. This would force employees to work beyond their working hours. This can make them lose their family commitments as well. In such a situation, employees get frustrated and they tend to leave the companies.
3. Ignorance of employee opinions
Nobody likes to get ignored. This is applicable for the employees as well. They have great ideas and suggestions, which can contribute towards getting more work done in the projects and developing the office. When they put out these opinions, managers simply ignore. If you are a manager, you should never ignore them. Even though the employees are not as experienced as you, they will have great ideas and suggestions. You need to encourage the employees to put out those suggestions, so that you can work accordingly. In the meantime, it is also important for you to welcome the ideas and opinions put forwarded by employees. You need to make sure that the employees don’t feel ignored at any given instance.
4. Disrespecting employees
Disrespecting employees is one of the biggest mistakes done by managers. If you are a manager, it is important to pay extra attention to this as well. Managers don’t just disrespect the work done by employees, but also disrespect the employees in general. It is important to give respect to earn respect. All the managers should work while keeping this in mind. In the meantime, it is also important to make sure that all employees are treated with respect and they are appraised for the work that is done. You should also respect employees for all the commitments that they do.
5. Ignoring performance appraisals
It is important for the managers to conduct performance appraisals and evaluate the work done by employees on a regular basis. This should take place at least once in a year. During the performance appraisals, managers should think about providing constructive feedback for the employees as well. Employees work hard and they deserve regular feedback through performance appraisals. You need to be honest and supportive during the performance appraisals. This can provide a great overall assistance to the employees with getting their work done as well. Hence, they will tend to stay.
6. Holding the growth of the company intentionally
There are managers, who intentionally hold the growth of companies as well. In fact, managers don’t provide opportunity for the employees to go ahead and achieve something that they deserve. Some of the managers think about this as a threat to them. Due to the same reason, they don’t provide promotions to the employees who deserve them. In order to overcome this situation, you need to go ahead and provide promotions to all the employees who deserve them in a timely manner. Then you can ensure that employees don’t get frustrated and they are not pushed to the point where they will leave their jobs.
7. Discouraging behavior and creativity
Employees tend to come up with creative methods to get their work done, instead of following the traditional path. If this path can help the employees to end up with expected results within a short period of time, you need to encourage them. In here, you need to understand that skills of employees differ from one to another. As a result, employees will tend to come up with their own ways to get work done efficiently. If you are discouraging such creativity, you will be forcing the employees to stop thinking creatively. In some of the instances, managers even tend to humiliate the employees who follow creative methods to get work done. You should never do this. You need to encourage behavior and creativity at all times. Then you can collaboratively work together for the development of business.
As a manager, you need to go through these tips and figure out whether you are committing one or more of them. If you are, it is the high time to think about introducing much-needed change to your managerial behavior. This can help you to end up with positive results at the end of the day.
