Employee turn-over and retention issues have hit businesses like a tsunami.  There are many forces at work creating the current phenomenon: the release of pent-up desires to move as COVID eases, hybrid work, early retirement and the demographic drought, and many more factors.  The net result is that employee loyalty is at an all-time low.

If you’re like most leaders today, statistics suggest that more than half of your employees have updated their resume in the past year, and many are in a constant state of job search. Employee retention is quickly becoming a crisis.

Focusing on employee turn-over and retention is important because:

  • Turnover is costly – up to 250% of an employee’s salary (depending on position)
  • Unwanted turnover decreases performance and increases stress and burnout of remaining employees.
  • The number of available qualified workers is decreasing, while the competition for them is increasing.

Today, retaining star employees in our hyper-competitive workforce market is essential for business success. Companies with the strongest people win!
