[link] THE 2017 TECH LEAVERS STUDY

I really don't know much about this Kapor Center so take it for a grain of salt, but seemed like an interesting discussion.

Quote

The Tech Leavers Study is a first-of-its-kind national study examining why people voluntarily left their jobs in tech. The Kapor Center and Harris Poll surveyed a representative sample of more than 2,000 U.S. adults who have left a job in a technology-related industry or function within the last three years.

What did we learn?

Workplace culture drives turnover, significantly affecting the retention of underrepresented groups, and costing the industry more than $16 billion each year.

Perhaps someone will introduce a site where people can discreetly and securely log their reason for leaving a company. At some stage, if someone chooses to pursue it further, it may be possible to assimilate information about a particular company.

(Something similar for another cause was mentioned in the paper a few days ago, but I have forgotten what it specifically concerned.)

& then you end up with a Yelp like structure of constant content containing drama, exaggerations, & even lying. The entire thing fizzles out when people become disinterested & lawsuits begin.
