It's not (only) about the money.

  • Values mismatch: Especially young professionals prioritize work culture even over their salary. If they don’t get along with their colleagues or feel that the values of the organization aren't in line with their personal values, they are very likely to move on. 

  • Lack of motivation and purpose: Taking pride in your work massively improves motivation. People that don’t feel proud of their contribution and perceive that their work isn’t important and meaningful often feel disconnected and discouraged. 

  • Not being involved in processes: Nothing kills motivation like feeling your voice isn’t valued. Disengaged team members very often underperform at their tasks. 

When workers are treated as thinking humans instead of just “a pair of hands to do the work”, their intrinsic motivation and commitment to the company increases massively.
