We will give you a hint— the biggest reason doesn’t have anything to do with the job itself. In March 2014, a Gallup poll of more than 1 million employed workers found that a bad boss is the top reason U.S. employees quit their jobs. That month alone, 2.475 million Americans left their jobs.

Here are the top 10 reasons people leave and what you can do to prevent that from happening.
As you look back at employees who have left your company, do you know the reasons? If you don’t, you may want to consider performing exit interviews to get more insight into why employees leave and what you can do to prevent that problem in the future.
