If you ask a thriving company what makes their business so successful, most will respond that their success is due to the support and hard work of their team members. Finding knowledgeable, hard-working, enthusiastic employees can be a challenge for any company, but what can be even more difficult is the retention of those employees once they've joined the organization.

The key to keeping great employees is to ensure that they are receiving the guidance and leadership they need to thrive and succeed in their roles. Entrepreneur.com recently shared an article on the 9 Things Managers Do That Make Good Employees Quitincluding overworking their staff, failing to recognize their achievements, and failing to challenge their team members intellectually. And while all of these points ring true, the key takeaway is this:

employees“Managers tend to blame their turnover problems on everything under the sun, while ignoring the crux of the matter: people don’t leave jobs; they leave managers.”

Having a great team will definitely boost the success of a company, but it is the managers who oversee those teams who are responsible for the retention of those employees, therefore, impacting the overall success of the business.
