Top 4 reasons that candidates leave their jobs/start looking:

  1. Career progression – whether lack of it at their current employer or greater opportunity elsewhere – 28%
  2. Content of the role – many candidates reported being “bored” in their role, and wanted the opportunity to work on new/larger accounts or take on new responsibilities – 24%
  3. Environment/culture – some candidates moved on as they felt their agencies were too small, not innovative enough or lacked a good team dynamic – 19%
  4. Location/relocation – either to move somewhere new or due to a change in circumstances – 15%

 

We can conclude from this that some key actions agencies can take to retain staff are:

  • Offer clear and consistent career progression with employees fully aware of how to take their next step
  • Try to vary responsibilities, with rotation around accounts and “stretch” projects to learn new skills
  • Focus on creating a great culture with a focus on innovation – happy employees who feel they are doing exciting work stay
  • Offer flexibility when employees have a change in their family/home situation
