Tampa Bay workers are more likely than employees in other metro areas to quit because of a boss they don’t like. That’s according to a recent survey of 2,800 employees in 28 metro areas by staffing firm Robert Half.
Tampa Bay tied for second place with Miami among the metros included with just under 60 percent of surveyed workers saying their manager was the driving reason for their departure. It outpaced the national average of 49 percent. Sacramento had the largest percentage of workers quit under those circumstances — 66 percent.
“Work styles and how well a person gets along with their supervisor can determine whether someone decides to join or remain at a company,” said Paul McDonald, senior executive director for Robert Half.
Minneapolis had the lowest percentage of employees who quit because of a manager (36 percent).
