Online PR News – 04-November-2010 – – Just over one in ten people (11%) leave their jobs because they hate their boss, according to new research conducted by catalogue firm Kleeneze.
The study of over 2,000 people leaving their jobs, found that getting away from a bad boss was a major factor behind people choosing to quit.
The number one reason given for changing jobs was to earn more money (35%), often to avoid getting into debt, and 17% wanted to achieve a better work/life balance.
The research reflects the stories of many new Kleeneze recruits who have turned to the company because they want the opportunity to work for themselves.
Jamie Stewart, managing director of Kleeneze, said: “We’re seeing more and more people joining Kleeneze saying that becoming their own boss was a major factor in their decision. Obviously problem bosses play a significant role in millions of people each year changing jobs or even deciding to start their own business.
“The great thing about Kleeneze is that the costs of starting up are really small, making it an affordable way to start a business and earn more money.”
