I agree, Jaleel. I believe that personal relationships are more important than company loyalty.
I think this is generally true but it may extend beyond the immediate manager to the higher ranks. Staff usually commiserate with their immediate boss and see a bottleneck up the line.
The second major reason for leaving is a recognition or perception that there are no opportunities or path for advancement. This may be because of the industry, the companies position within the industry, the corporate culture, or management failure to recognize and promote capable staff.
It is not true. Managers are there for a reason: because they are in line with the culture of the organization. Then, people leave organizations. Unfortunatelly, in the last years, some buzzwords or buzzstatements are there like what you stated. At the end, all that things helps organization do not make "mea culpa" or a real analysis about their accountability as an organization.
I would agree with your statement. The people who are immediately around you and who you are dealing with on a daily basis in the worplace will ultimately defined your work 'experience' and you general happiness level within an organization.
The need to feel appreciated and wanted is an overwhelming factor when people decide to remain or quite their job. Salary, responsibilities, career progression and status would be lower down the list on methods in order to retain staff so having a manager that you are reporting into that embodies Emotional Intelligence along with the seven attributes discussed in other posts would be rarity not the norm in the workplace.
I completely agree.
I've left some organizations with a great corporate culture because the people manager I had was horrible. I've also stuck around a long time in companies with a terrible prevailing culture because the people manager did an excellent job of creating a safe space for his/her team.
The people surrounding you, your manager more than others, have much more impact on how you feel daily, that the company does.
Agree with you and with the comments of most of the previous comments. Doesn't matter if you have free breakfast, a gym or other benefits at job if your manager or peers aren't supportive or bully you.
Unfortunately that is not the case in many organizations. I have worked at several organizations where the culture was great and people loved the company, but, the manger caused people to look elsewhere.
As with many statements asserting a truism, it isn't quite that simple. Certainly people will depart from under a poor manager if they see no way to transfer away from that manager. But as noted by others, if corporate culture is too toxic or corporate directions aren't going the right way, people will depart good managers too - though they may hold on a bit longer.
