Key Points
High performers leave organizations because:

Work is no longer meaningful. They’ve accomplished their goals and now they’re looking for much more meaningful work, projects and challenges.
Flexibility and autonomy are missing. The “when” and “how” people work is becoming incredibly important.
They have outgrown the role. They perceive that just because they’ve outgrown the role that there is no where else to go in the organization.

What leaders can do:

Help candidates find what’s meaningful for them.
Create opportunities to work when and how they want.
Help people create their own role.
