Signs Employees are Headed Out the Door

Personal Crisis / Professional Epiphany

Employees have personal lives too – which is something no boss should ever forget.  It’s the balance of work and home life that keeps people on an even keel and – generally – happy in their work.  If something happens in one aspect of their lives, chances are good it’s going to affect the other.

For instance, if an employee is going through a divorce, has recently lost a loved one or is suffering a health-related crisis, these events can often cause a dramatic re-thinking of priorities.  Employees may begin to look elsewhere, thinking that finding greener grass in their work lives with help them feel better in their personal lives.

You can spot this sort of life-altering change by engaging on a real, personal level with your employees.  Ask them how they are doing, take an interest in their families and genuinely empathize with them in their times of need.

If you’d like to keep these employees, try giving them some time off by adjusting their work schedule or even a lightened workload for a short period.  If they have the opportunity to de-stress and take care of what’s happening in their lives off the clock, chances are they’ll be less prone to make rash decisions about their careers.

Jealousy Rears Its Head

Go-getters are often a company’s lifeblood.  Unlike “Yes” men and women, they actually possess the drive and skills that your business can put to good use.  However, these same employees often suffer from jealousy, especially if they get passed over for promotion in favor of others.  Their dedication to their jobs (or their careers) is often – at least partially – to blame for their feelings of envy and anger, as they’ve sacrificed their time to their jobs and feel entitled to promotions.

Unfortunately, their feelings don’t really have any correlation to what’s best for the company.  You have to promote on skill and intuition alone – not on tenure or personal opinion.

Jealousy can manifest itself in many ways, but most often, angered employees will speak out (either within earshot or to other employees) about their hurt feelings.  They want to feel valued and misperceive your action as an intentional slight.  Address the problem quickly by reassuring these employees that their work is indeed valued and – if possible – invest in their skills by offering additional training.

If your employee is using an excessive amount of sick, vacation or personal time at the beginning of the year (or yearly cycle), there’s a good chance they’re doing so to get rid of it before they quit.  These days don’t come cheap and using them all at once doesn’t really make any sense – unless they have a good reason.

Often, these employees are already out the door in their own minds, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try and persuade them to stay.  Just don’t be surprised if they elect not to.

If your employees begin to “give up” on their job, it will manifest itself in many ways – but the most noticeable will be in their attitudes and work ethic.  

Verbally Expressing Unhappiness

If your employees are actually telling you and others how unhappy they are in their jobs, there’s a good chance they’re ready to quit.  Generally, when these sorts of feeling arise, employees try to keep them to themselves.  They don’t want to be singled out and they don’t want others to see them as “whiners.”

However, as these feelings of unhappiness grow, they get harder and harder to hide.  They’ll often come out around the water cooler, on social media sites or even in your office – giving you the opportunity to address the situation with the employee and look for ways to resolve the situation.

If you spot any of these habits or “tells” in your employees, the first step should always be to engage them.  Opening a dialogue may be all it takes to win an excellent employee over once again.  However, understanding why an employee is doing what they are doing may force you into making a tough decision.

While it’s in your best interest to keep good employees when you can, letting employees go when they become a liability is also in your best interest.  Therefore, if you discover an employee really is intent on quitting, asking them to leave sooner than later may be the best option.  This will allow you to minimize conflict and plan for their replacement without disrupting your company’s overall workflow.
