1 of out every 5 of your best talent, is likely to leave your organization within the next 6 months.
If you don’t think at least 1 of out every 5 of your best talent, is currently considering leaving your organization, think again! According to the latest research, less than half of high performers are satisfied with their jobs and 1 in 5 say they’re likely to leave the organization within the next 6 months.
For a salaried worker earning $60,000 a year, your company will likely spend $45,000 to replace that worker.
The cost of replacing a valued employee can set your company back as much as 2x their annual salary. And with high performers delivering approximately 400% more in productivity than the average employee, losing even a few of your star workers can have an astronomical impact on your bottom line.
According to the US Labor Department, 3.1 Million Americans who voluntarily left their jobs in January 2017.
The number of Americans who have voluntarily quit their jobs in now the highest it’s been in nearly a decade.
