From Bob Weinstein's Column "Why Employees Jump Ship ".
"Gregory P. Smith, author of "Here Today, Here Tomorrow: Transforming Your Workforce from High-Turnover to High-Retention," says most employees take new jobs because of management problems. He lists five common management mistakes:
1. Demanding that one person do the jobs of two or more people, resulting in longer days and weekend work.
2. Cutting back on administrative help, which forces workers to use their time copying, stapling, collating, filing and performing other clerical duties.
3. Putting a freeze on raises and promotions.
4. Not allowing the rank and file to make decisions or denying them pride of ownership.
5. Constantly reorganizing and changing direction."
