In the latest episode of the Progression Podcast we dive into his findings- getting through everything from hiring to attrition and the relative importance of different factors in someone's decision to leave. And the results are interesting: it turns out that 35% of people list lack of career growth as their reason for leaving a company, but under 4% of design teams have a progression framework.

We also dig into some of the stats around progression frameworks – when do companies roll them out and when should you start considering one for your team.
