Learn about the costs behind presenteeism and turnover and how to cultivate a culture that attracts, and keeps, employees long term.
The media has called it the Great Resignation, and this mass exodus from the workforce is affecting almost every industry. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statics, 4 million people left their jobs in July 2021, continuing a months-long trend of record-breaking resignations. This level of turnover is not only time-consuming, but it’s also costly. It can take between one-half to twice an employee’s salary to replace an employee. And frequent turnover can hinder attracting new talent. So what is causing so many people to leave their jobs, and how can your company prevent it from happening?
