A study by researchers of the Utah State University have found that there are 3 extremely connected behaviours that best represent when an employee is looking to quit.
The study interviewed 100 managers and 100 employees
about changes in the behaviour of people who quit that could
have revealed they were on their way out. The survey
resulted in more than 900 pre-quitting behaviours, which the
researchers condensed into a list of 116 by grouping similar
Some of the pre-quitting behaviours are:
Their work productivity has decreased more than usual.
They have acted less like a team player than usual.
They have been doing the minimum amount of work more frequently than usual.
They have been less interested in pleasing their manager than usual.
They have been less willing to commit to long-term timelines than usual.
They have exhibited a negative change in attitude.
They have exhibited less effort and work motivation than usual.
They have exhibited less focus on job-related matters than usual.
It’s important to note that the results do emphasise the
importance of getting to know your staff by interacting with
them on a daily basis.
