Where’s the Breaking Point for Employees? [Infographic]

Many thanks to Oliver Carsson for supplying me with this interesting infographic and guest post. On "things the bug employees," 74 percent said "subpar benefits." Heh. I'll bet closer to 100 percent of waiters and waitresses might have that complaint. 

Enjoy this guest post! 


Have you ever had something bug you at work? Maybe it started out small, like you had to answer that email while you were on the beach with your family. Or your boss called you after you’d already turned out the lights and snuggled down for the night.
Or maybe it was a little bigger. Linda got promoted as your team’s lead when you and she both know that you’ve been there longer and care more about the team’s success. Perhaps your manager wouldn’t let you take a couple hours to go help in your first-grader’s Halloween party even though you would have made up the time and some. Whatever the reason, something bugged you enough that you just couldn’t forget about it.
BambooHR just completed a survey of over 1,000 current employees in the US to find out which things annoyed them and would ultimately turn into the breaking point for employees.

They highlight their findings in the infographic below specifically why people leave their jobs, employees top five workplace deal breakers, and the biggest situations that annoy employees.

  1. Difficult co-workers would certainly be a deal breaker for me.

  2. Good one, William! That detail has spurred me on to look for something better in the past! Life is so short, and we spend so much time working.

  3. My number one annoyance is not being challenged with advancements.

  4. That is incredibly frustrating -- "underemployment," I think it's called.


Please share your thoughts.
