Why Do Staff Leave?
Over the years I’ve heard many reasons why people leave their job, it’s one of the first questions we ask.
If you employ CNC Programmers and they tell you they’re leaving do you ever get to understand the reasons why?
Here’s 18 different randomly chosen reasons from 18 CNC Programmers as to why they wanted to leave their current job
Maybe some of these situations exist in your Machine Shop?
- “Been there 16 years and the company have gone to a 4 day week and gone really quiet – job insecurity coupled with a drop in money”
- “Would like to earn more money but no possibility as the company don’t pay overtime rates”
- “Left the company as fell out with the Production Manager over a 3 year period”
