According to a Gallup study, many working adults left their jobs because of a bad boss. In a study of 7,200 adults, goal setting and managing priorities were two of the most important factors for workers to be satisfied with their managers.

It can be bemusing when you listen to managers or bosses complain that their best employees are leaving. The thing is, we don’t leave our jobs – we leave our bosses. No employee wants to be in a stiff and tense environment where there is no room to achieve one’s career goals. It is important for bosses to recognize our needs and fulfill our desires. Here are some things bosses do that make us leave.

1. They don’t trust us

We live in a world where trust is a scarce commodity, but employing someone means that you have a certain amount of belief in the person’s abilities. There is no point in always looking over your shoulder. When a boss continually questions every action or decision we make, we will become frustrated. We need the opportunity to prove our worth.

2. They don’t reward us for our good work

We are not expecting an instant promotion for making the company better and achieving a part of the company’s objectives. Yet there is nothing wrong in offering us a pat on the back. There is no one who doesn’t like a thumb up for their hard work. When we work our butts off to meet deadlines and reach goals, we should be rewarded for a job well done. We won’t leave the company if we are being rewarded for our efforts.

3. They are dishonest

Every employee values truth and honesty. It is important for bosses to possess character. There really is no excuse for a manager to be dishonest and lie to their employees. When we catch the boss lying, it becomes difficult for us to believe in what the company stands for. We want our bosses to have integrity and solid character.

4. They are difficult

How much opportunity are we given to express our thoughts and offer our ideas? Bosses who let their employees leave could have this know-it-all persona that scares us and our wonderful ideas away. Just as much as bosses are full of great ideas, we also have great ideas of our own. Try and prompt us to be expressive rather than stifle us with authority.

5. They overwork us

According to a study, overworking employees more than 50 hours diminishes their productivity. No employee wants to be burnt out. Rather than try to break us down with more work, appreciate and value our effort by rewarding us with a better status for our hard work. Even when we are talented and resourceful at our job, we can’t keep producing good work if we’re burnt out. Increasing our workload means the boss should also be willing to offer us a better status, a better paycheck and a better work environment. If they want to turn us into a slave without offering us more rewards, walking out the door seems to be a better deal.

6. They hire and promote the wrong people

Nothing is as awful as a talented person working under a blockhead. You can’t get the best out of a poor structural chain. To get hard working employees to stay, bosses need to learn to have the right people in the right places. They should learn to hire other talented people, who boost the efficacy of already talented employees. When the wrong people are promoted instead of let go, bosses are only creating a platform for the right and talented employees to walk away.
