Top reasons employees quit in the first year

Editor's Note

Recent research by Korn Ferry, a global consulting firm, looks at why employees quit their jobs within 12 months.

Among the findings:

  • Feeling out of sync, or uncomfortable, with the company’s culture or purpose
  • Lack of understanding of the purpose and value of their role
  • Lack of friendly or helpful coworkers
  • Lack of attention from managers.

Korn Ferry offers three steps that leaders can take to impact attrition rates:

  • attract more of the right kind of candidates to apply or self-select out through an engaging employee value proposition and accurate picture of the job
  • identify applicants with a good cultural fit and the right skills
  • focus on quality onboarding.
