Reason 1- Not Feeling Part of the Company

For the millennial generation, there’s now more of a need than ever to feel valued and part of a company’s progression.

According to Personnel Today:

“a sense of ‘team’ and ‘belonging’ should not be underestimated and organisations must look to emphasise training, mentorship and company/team culture as important selling points. “

Feeling part of a company’s development comes from having: more responsibility, developing your skills and actively engaging in the decision-making process of your organisation.

If you feel like you’re not making much of a contribution to your company’s progress and wish to play a more active role in the decision-making, it might be worth looking for an alternative role where you’ll have more of a direct impact on the outcomes of the company’s ambitions.

Reason 2 – Dreading Getting Up in the Morning

If you are consistently waking up every morning dreading going to work, something might need to change.

Your time spent at work contributes to a large chunk of your life and if you’re regularly feeling unhappy it might be worth looking into different career options.

Feeling anxious and overwhelmed for a long period of time can be detrimental to your health so it could be the right time to look to work for organisations which provide you with challenging and enjoyable work.

Sunday night anxiety will become a thing of the past.

Reason 3- Lack of Development

Feeling bored at work can be a dangerous place to be.

If you’re not developing or regularly challenging yourself to improve, your career can stagnate. There is nothing wrong with being a motivated to develop and improve yourself during your professional development.

If you’ve outgrown your current role and things start to become too easy, search for more challenging opportunities that will help you grow.

Reason 4- Work/Life Balance

Spending too much time at work can have a knock-on affect on your relationships, health and general well being.

Being constantly exposed to stress and overwhelm is only going to limit your productivity in the long run. Give yourself time to relax, reenergise so you can produce your best work on a consistent basis.

Employers are becoming more understanding of the importance of work/life balance. If you are feeling like you have no time outside of work, you can always begin speaking to recruitment agencies and/or with organisations where work/life balance is more of a priority.
