People leaving jobs because of 'chaos in the workplace'
Lynda Ward
Lynda Ward

Recruitment specialist Pet Trade Solutions is reporting that chaos in the workplace is now a major reason for people leaving jobs.

Owner Lynda Ward, who utilises her 30 years’ experience in the trade for dedicated recruitment and marketing solutions, says that some companies are in such a hurry to grow that they forget that how the company is run can affect their staff...and ultimately their business.

“Constantly changing policy, lack of guidance, poor customer care and management mistakes eventually take their toll on staff morale. 

"Admin, sales, marketing, production and distribution staff are all affected by strategies and day to day management and a chaotic, overstretched environment has a knock-on effect throughout the company, leading to mistakes, poor performance and frustration.”

She goes on: “Whilst businesses need and thrive on vigorous activity this should not be confused with turmoil and disorder in which people are unsure of the 5 Ws – where, what, who, when and why.

"When employers are looking at staff problems or performance they also need to turn the mirror round and evaluate how the business and perhaps they themself operate and how that affects the people working for them...and long-term growth.”

Lynda is always happy to personally advise on any aspects of recruitment and marketing strategy and can be contacted on 07946 743784 or at
