Even a company’s best employee may know when it’s time to call it quits. Perhaps, he or she is looking for better opportunities – and it’s not hard to find out if you look hard enough. When your top employee comes to work dressed better than usual, it’s a sign that they have been to a previous interview before work.
Other signs like reduced productivity, isolation, and unusual requests for time off may be signals to the boss that this worker is ready to throw in the towel for something better. Sometimes big life changes such as marriage and kids can also lead to changes in the worker’s behavior.
