5 Reasons Why People Resign From Their Job by Tyrina Lassiter

If you stumbled upon this article, you’re probably thinking, “I want to leave this job” or “I’m stressed working at my current job.” I’m here to tell you; this is a sign to start looking for other options! 

Maybe you are considering staying at your job because you feel you don’t have enough reasons to resign. Well, take a look at these reasons below. And if you relate to any of these, it’s time to go! Come along and take the “Reasons why people leave their jobs” train with me. 


  • 1. You feel underappreciated and Undervalued: 
  • Employers can tend to give you more work with no salary increase. Or it could have nothing to do with money; It could be they aren't giving you any verbal recognition for all your hard work. I don't care what anybody says, you work better when you know that you are appreciated. Do you agree?

  • 2. There is an Imbalance between Work and Personal life.

  • When you don't have the option of taking the day off, or you get sick and can't use sick leave because you don't have enough days, It can cause you to feel your personal life and your work life isn’t balanced. Even if you work from home, it’s good to have the option of not logging on for your mental health or spending time with family or friends. 

  • 3. Your Manager or Supervisor fails to manage you correctly.

  • Not everyone in leadership positions is equipped or has the background to lead a team properly. Managers need to have the training to be great managers and handle various team members. Everyone is different and possibly needs to be managed differently. With different cultural backgrounds, races, personalities, and home lives, staff in leadership positions need to be flexible in directing each person. 

  • 4. Not enough diversity in the workplace

  • Employers can tend to hire the same type of people, which isn’t just race-related. It means diversity with age, gender, culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and citizenship status. Diversity can help with company morale and also, depending on what type of job you have, help you understand your customer’s needs. Employees also what to see someone that looks like them in the workplace. Someone that they can relate to but also someone they can learn from. Hey, when you think about it, we are at work more than anywhere, whether you work from home or in the office. Don’t you want to feel comfortable at a place you spend most of your time? 

  • 5. You don’t have everything you need to do your job effectively.

  • Work computers outdated, the systems used at work make your job more complicated than what it has to be, or down to something simple as an uncomfortable workstation. You’ve asked numerous times for items or tools that make the workday not as challenging to get through, but there is no resolution. Your employer isn’t financially able to afford what you need to do your job efficiently. 

    Do any of these reasons relate to you and your job? I’m sure if you kept reading, they do. You have options! Make sure your resume and cover letter are up to date, and start exploring other organizations to better your life. Never stay at a job that doesn’t meet your needs to perform to the best of your ability.
