 For those grappling with employee attrition and retention issues, here’s some insight into why people quit. In an online poll conducted by Yellojobs.com, a referral recruitment network, 42 per cent of the respondents said they changed jobs due to “bad” superiors. Of the 10,000 job seekers who took part in the survey, 34 per cent said they could not continue in their jobs as their organisation could not provide any further prospects for growth and remuneration.

Uninteresting job profiles, office politics and work environment were the other reasons cited for changing jobs. Yellojobs.com is a joint venture between Singapore-based online advertising company Yello, and London headquartered recruitment company Contact Recruitment.
