, I have my own opinions on what a good employee is and I know how hard it is to come across such talent and loyalty in a person to make an effort to perform at their best.

These are the type of people that is a manager’s dream to have employees that have a genuine care for the business, but it is incredible that managers complain about their best employees leaving, and they have no idea why they’re complaining. The turning over rate is not going to be solved by being persistent in complaining.

There are many managers who are clueless in how they are treating their employees therefore causing them to hate their work and leave. Nothing burns good employees out quite like overworking them. It’s so tempting to work your best people hard that managers frequently fall into this trap. Overworking good employees is perplexing; it makes them feel as if they’re being punished for great performance.

Promoting the wrong people is even worse. When you work your tail off only to get passed over for a promotion that’s given to someone who glad-handed their way to the top, it’s a massive insult.

If you want your best people to stay, you need to think carefully about how you treat them. While good employees are as tough as nails, their talent gives them more options. You need to make them want to work for you.
