When top performers decide to jump ship, managers may want to consider a little self-reflection, a recent survey suggests. More than one-third (35 per cent) of executives interviewed said good employees are most likely to quit their jobs because of unhappiness with management.


This is up from 23 per cent when the question was asked five years ago. Limited opportunities for advancement was the second most common answer, cited by 33 per cent of respondents, according to the Robert Half International survey.
