Successful organizations realize employee retention is integral to sustaining their leadership and growth in the marketplace. Those that fail to make employee retention a priority are at risk of losing their top talented people to the competition.

Teams with reduced employee turnover develop a deep familiarity with the goals and objectives of the organization. They often become personally invested in the success of the team and company. By focusing on the skills and practices that maximize hiring efficiency and minimize employee turnover, managers promote employee retention and build stronger teams.

It can cost between $3 – 7K to replace an hourly worker and up to $50K to replace a midlevel, salaried employee. Replacement costs usually are 2.5 times the salary of the individual. The costs associated with turnover include lost customers, business, and damaged morale. In addition are the hard costs of time spent in advertising, screening, verifying credentials, references, interviewing, hiring, and training the new employee just to get back to where you started.
