Did you know that 75 percent of the time, the reasons employees leave their jobs could be prevented by employers? In the first scientific study of its kind, Work Institute analyzed more than 250,000 exit interviews over eight years, and we’ll share our most recent findings to help you prevent turnover in your workplace. This online webinar will reveal the truth about the employee marketplace and separate fact from fiction when it comes to why employees quit – and how it’s most often not about money.
Employees are in power. They have options, and they are not afraid to take them. That may not be what you believe, but it’s true. Right now, there are more jobs than people to fill them. It is harder than ever to attract people to a job and keep them at that job. Through observing the information and key learnings from Work Institute’s annual retention report, attendees can learn the necessary elements of a data driven retention strategy. In a world full of innovative ideas that are pushing us more and more online, it is vital to understand how we collect and utilize accurate data to both predict and prevent costly employee turnover.
Work Institute hears it over and over again from business leaders across the country: “Our organization has the opportunity to grow, but we can’t attract and retain the employees we need.” So, how can these companies keep the employees they need to run effectively and grow their businesses, too? This online webinar reveals the root causes, the truth, about employee turnover, the cost and what you can do to prevent it in your organization.
Some of the statistics that this topic will cover include:
1. More than three in four employees, 77 percent, who quit could have been retained by employers.
2. 6% of employees will leave their jobs this year to work elsewhere.
3. There are over 6.6 million open jobs today and not enough job seekers to fill them.
4. Voluntary turnover is projected to cost companies more than $600 billion in 2018 and can increase to nearly $680 billion by 2020.
These unique, eye-opening insights from the 2019 Retention Report have been featured in USA Today, Forbes and HRDive.com.
