Employee retention can be a real struggle and there are many reasons why employees seek out new opportunities. As a recruiter, one of the most common reasons I hear for candidates wanting to leave a role is their poor relationship with their boss.
A supportive manager recognises strengths and develops them over weaknesses, sets goals and creates a good learning opportunity for you within the organisation to ensure you are motivated and engaged.
Managers are often the pillar of support for employees in corporations and surveys have shown that a manager's support can have a huge influence on one's job and career.
Having the right support and a good relationship with your boss plays a vital role, impacting success and happiness.
Employees who believe their company cares for them perform better. What value does an employer place on you as an employee? Are you there to get the job done and go home? Are you paid fairly, well-trained and confident in your job security? Do you work under good job conditions? Do you receive constructive feedback, or do you feel demeaned or invisible?
