People don’t leave jobs, they leave managers

Sad businesswomanA well worn phrase, which we find ourselves using regularly, but a recent survey by the CMI has again proved it to be true.

A staggering 50% of UK workers had left previous employment because of poor management. So what leads to this frightening statistic? Apparently the survey concludes that:

68% of managers had simply “just fallen into the role”

40% of managers didn’t want “the responsibility of being a manager”

80% of managers have no formal qualifications in management.

Food for thought indeed and a real justification of the work that we are doing with the CMI to address the issue. Adalta work with the CMI to offer a broad spectrum of leadership and management training courses enabling candidates to achieve professional qualifications leading towards Chartered Manager status.

Whlst becoming ‘chartered’  is seen as almost de rigeur for accountants, surveyors and the like, there are only 900 chartered managers in the whole of the UK. Gaining this highly prestigious status can be added to level 5 or level 7 qualifications and will be highly regarded on your CV.

Increasingly employers are recognising that good management not only helps to deliver real benefit and growth for a company but also can ensure that key workers are contented in their work, proving less likely to leave with all the disruption that this can cause.
