With an uptick in job opportunities, employees are becoming more optimistic. As a result, those who have been hunkered down, awaiting the economic storm to pass are resurfacing now, and if they don’t like what they see, they are on the hunt for better opportunities. Are you one of these employees?
1. You Are Tired of Being Frenetic. If your culture feeds off of drama spurred by poor or last-minute decision-making, little or no vision or project planning;, and constantly shifting gears rather than sticking to a decision or plan, you likely are at risk of losing some key players. Employees understand that disruptions in the economy, marketplace shifts, new product roll-outs that get hung up, technology snafus and other emergencies occasionally happen, and they must therefore pitch in with verve—and swiftly–to ensure a smooth resolution.
However, constant frenzy generally is not an acceptable culture for anyone seeking to sustain their enthusiasm for their job. If their personal lives and their health begin to suffer as a result of a culture of frantic, employees often find themselves networking their way into a new, healthier environment.
2. Your Expertise No Longer Is Respected. For various reasons, well-respected employees may discover a once mutually respectful culture taking a sharp left turn, where their professional opinions no longer seem to hold much weight. For example, if your leadership guard is suddenly replaced, and the incoming CEO has a distinctly different agenda that appears to disregard current employees’ opinions and ideas, trouble mounts.
Perhaps the new leadership wants to rapidly grow a small business in order to compete with the Fortune 500 competitors. If they pivot so quickly that the longstanding employees who have navigated the storms of start-up are simply dismissed in the process, they not only risk losing those employees, they also risk making a move that may tear down the foundational core of your company’s operation. Since the old guard employees are no longer there, no one with any real experience or company history will be left to help bail your company out.
