Employee Turnover:

Why Employees Quit Their Jobs

About the Study

In late 2019, we surveyed almost 1,000 respondents to discover the hidden trends of employee turnover and help companies retain their top talent.

Through our ‘Employee Turnover’ study, which looked into the different factors that can put job satisfaction and employee morale in jeopardy, we found that the most likely reason someone would leave their job was a lack of progression, followed by low pay and the absence of a salary raise.
