The True Cost of Employee Turnover

In today’s business environment, hiring and retaining quality employees is more important than ever. Studies show the cost of replacing an employee is typically equal to 16 to 20 percent of the employee’s annual salary. In addition to the monetary cost, turnover damages morale and requires you to spend time:

  • Advertising job openings
  • Conducting interviews, screening, and hiring employees
  • Training and onboarding your new employee
  • Dealing with loss of productivity due to the “learning curve”
  • Handling potential errors and customer service problems

A quality retirement plan and benefits package is proven to lower employee turnover and will help you attract the right people when the time comes.
