Is Your Management Style Leading Employees to Walk Out the Door?

Posted

Turnover happens at every company. Generally speaking, the average annual turnover rate is 19%, according to a 2016 report from the Society for Human Resource Management. If yours is much higher, there’s a problem — and that problem might be you.

A 2015 Gallup study revealed that one in two adults have left a job to get away from a bad manager. You probably think employee resignations have nothing to do with you, but the numbers don’t lie. Solving your turnover issue might mean taking a long hard look at yourself.

Change Your Ways

If your management style includes any of the following, it’s time to make some adjustments for the better:

Behaving like a Tyrant

You want your team to respect you, but employees don’t hold bosses they’re afraid of in high regard. Constantly yelling at staffers, speaking to them in a condescending tone, and embarrassing them in front of the team won’t win you any fans. Being an effective manager doesn’t mean you can’t be kind, caring, and approachable.

Micromanaging

It’s frustrating for talented employees to have a boss constantly looking over their shoulder. If this sounds familiar, it’s time to start trusting your team. Give them the freedom to complete tasks their own way, so they don’t give up and leave.

Failing to Recognize Outstanding Work

Top talent doesn’t do great work to receive praise, but constantly flying under the radar gets old. Maybe you’ve grown accustomed to your team surpassing your expectations or simply pass it off as people doing their job. Either way, lack of recognition will — and might already be —cause employees to head elsewhere.

Overworking People to the Point of Burnout

It’s fair to expect your team to work hard during business hours, but you need to respect their personal time. Frequently forcing people to work nights, weekends, and through their vacations — when you grant time off at all — will cause morale to plummet. Employees need a solid work-life balance to be happy. If you don’t understand that, they’ll have no trouble finding a company that respects their personal time.
