Catering Insight’s Job Satisfaction Survey results regarding reasons to leave a role were led by how employees feel about being part of a team.
Using a system of rating the reasons 1 to 5, with 1 being most likely to make a staff member quit and 5 least likely, 44.29% of the nearly 100 respondents rated not feeling part of a great team as 1, making it the number one reason distributor and manufacturer employees would leave.
No pay rise was the second highest reason, with 30% rating this as 1. No new responsibilities within the same job was not a concern for respondents, however, with 31.43% rating this a 5 on the priority scale.
No promotion provoked a mixed response, with 28.5% rating it a 3 and 32.86% rating it a 4. Respondents were unsure too about no training or career development offering, with 30% rating this as 2 but the next highest rating being 5, with 22.86%.
When separately asked what one factor apart from salary would encourage respondents to join a new company, nearly half (49.33%) said it would be due to better promotion and career prospects.
