(MCT)—Whenever the job market improves, employers are more inclined to let subpar or irritating workers go, figuring they can get better-quality employees.
I’m seeing more information from pollsters and consultants who say employees need to be aware if they’re being nudged out the door.
A June report from Harris Interactive said 27 percent of managers surveyed “have a direct report that they would like to see leave their company.” The surveyed managers listed these red flags:
—Your manager is pointing out more of your shortcomings.
—Your responsibilities are reduced, or you’re not part of certain meetings or projects.
—Your communications come by email, not in person or on the phone, and you’re out of the loop.
—A new employee is hired to do the same work you do.
—In social workplaces that have after-work gatherings, you’re not invited.
