You’ve finally mustered up the courage to hand in your notice and leave your job. But when you make the announcement, you find out you’re not alone… Baaaa!
Have you ever been in this situation?
When one person in a company hands in their notice, others tend to follow, just like sheep! But why is this? Are employees simply following the flock? What triggers other to follow?
With 49% of UK workers planning to change jobs in 2016, now is the time to reflect and reevaluate your career. Why are so many planning to leave their jobs? As the job industry has bounced back from recession, there are more work opportunities than in recent times. But why are so many overlooking the opportunities within their current workplaces? What could they be missing?
If a recent resignation in your team has left you feeling unsettled ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you happy in your current role?
- Do you feel valued?
- Is your job stretching you and meeting your career objectives?
If you’re planning on resigning, then the answer to at least one of these questions is probably no! But how could your current role be changed so that you to feel more satisfied and are motivated to stay?
Give your employer the opportunity to listen to your concerns and then act in order to turn those feelings around. Instead of following the crowd, be proactive and manage your career. Colleagues departing could mean new opportunities opening up for those who stay!
Whatever you do, don’t just follow the flock! The grass isn’t always greener in the field over the way…
