How Leadership Development Combats Employee Turnover

March 31, 2024

Even in today’s fragile employment market, many organisations see a high rate of employee resignations and turnover. Why are some organisations losing so many great employees? Because many employees have been overburdened with additional work, increased stress, and less resources, they are extremely frustrated! When you combine it with a general lack of appreciation for a job well done, or even frozen or lowered salary and perks, you have some really dissatisfied teammates. 

Today we’ll look at one of the primary reasons good people leave an organisation. Employees often quit from their managers rather than their jobs. Simply said, a strong leader has a favourable impact on others around him/her. Even if the firm is failing, a competent manager can filter out the issues while still leading his or her workforce to be productive. This creates a steady, successful working atmosphere. At Search partners international (SPi), we have compiled some effective actions on how leadership development can successfully combat employee turnover.
