Employee turnover

Also see:  Absence

High employee turnover, where workers frequently leave and must be replaced, leads to increased spending on recruitment and training and can indicate management problems. Employees often have good reasons for moving on but if too many are leaving an organisation, can be very disruptive.

You can plan for this turnover when someone retires, is dismissed or resigns due to ill health but sudden voluntary resignations can be very disruptive. The longer an employee works for you the more likely they are to stay, so it pays to focus on your induction and training programmes.
