In the IT world, where people are of the highest value to companies, where it takes a long time and effort to find experienced and highly-motivated specialists, many companies face a problem… Sometimes, developers quit without saying a word. For managers and team leaders, this can be surprising. Still, there’s no wonder that technical specialists rarely discuss their thoughts with their teams.
This is the right time when HR professionals have enough power to make the best developers stay at the company. Like psychologists, they forecast what people think and can offer them ways to get out of crises.
For you to know what to pay attention to, these are the most widespread reasons for developers’ quitting:
1. Boring Projects
Taking into consideration the developers' work which requires a lot of concentration and a serious approach, boring projects are #1 among reasons for leaving a company. Dozens of recruiters are looking for Senior developers and they are eager to offer something more interesting and challenging.
Still, everything depends on one’s preferences and hobbies. We doubt that a developer who’s fond of video games would like to work for years on a fintech project and on the contrary.
This is an important thing for HRs to keep in mind. Always ask people about their interests before making them an offer. If your project meets them, your company probably will benefit from the diligence of a person who enjoys the work.
2. Lack of Challenge
3. Lack of Appreciation
4. Wrong Environment
6. Burnouts at Work
