When it comes to new hires leaving a company within the first year there is a lot of particular reason for this to happen. Some of the reasons in which new hires leave a company within the first year include having a very excessive workload, having no acknowledgment, lack of flexibility, poor transparency, no communication and engagement, and no growth opportunities.
- New hires are often more productive but if you give them more work than you give their peers, they are bound to feel resentment.
- Staying silent when employees do a good job or, worse, vocally criticizing poor performance then refusing to acknowledge a job well done, de-motivates workers.
- Insisting your staff keep a traditional schedule is out of step with most organisations in the age of mobility, and it can make employees resent you for making them miss important moments in their personal life.
“The expense of finding and retaining top-performing talent can challenge a business’s profitability and, when employees leave within the first year, it adds even more costs.”
