According to a study from Gallup, 89% of employers believe that workers leave their company for more money. However, as it turns out, only a mere 12% of people actually do leave for that reason.
If there's one thing that this illustrates, it's this: When it comes to workplace satisfaction, there is a major disconnect between employees and their employers.
So, why do people really leave?
It often boils down to a lack of intrinsic motivation. While businesses currently do a lot to encourage their employees to chase money, a promotion, or a prize, there isn't enough being done to foster a true sense of pride and satisfaction.
