Do you know that many workers in the United Kingdom (UK) have quit their job in recent months? According to a new survey by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), many UK workers have cited various reasons for leaving a job in recent months. 

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) questioned 4,500 workers and managers in the survey to highlight the workplace culture across the UK. 

What happened to UK workers? Why are the workers quitting their jobs? What did UK workers say? What is the relationship between workers and their managers?

One in three UK workers quit their job

The research was carried out by YouGov. It questioned 4,500 workers and managers in the UK. The 2,018 workers questioned in the survey revealed that they left their job because of their negative relationship with a manager and discrimination at the workplace.

Reportedly, one-third of employees said that they were less motivated to do their job because of an ineffective manager. The negative relationship between employees and managers forced one-third of employees to leave their job.

The report also found that 82% of new managers in the UK did not receive formal training to take on management and leadership roles. The CMI found in a survey that many untrained managers had bad relationships with their employees.

Anthony Painter, the CMI’s director of policy, said that UK managers needed to improve their performance to prevent toxic workplace culture. He also said that better managers would improve the UK’s economic performance.

He said, “The fact that 82% haven’t received training when they’ve become managers, that tells us really how seriously we’re taking management and its importance collectively.”
