Employee turnover refers to the percentage of employees who leave a company over a set period, no matter the reason. SHRM estimates the costs of losing an employee to a 6 to 9 months’ salary on average.
“For a manager in the US, making $60,000 to $120,000 a year, there’s a $20,000 to $30,000 cost in recruiting and training expenses.”
The Center for American Progress estimates the costs of turnover to 6% of annual salary for high-turnover, low-paying jobs (earning under $30,000 a year), 20% of annual salary for mid-range positions (earning $30,000 to $50,000 a year) and up to 213% of annual salary for highly educated executive positions. For example, the cost to replace a $150k CEO is $213,000.
A happy employee finds meaning in his work, is satisfied by his achievements and has qualitative work relationships that allow him to be grateful and motivated.
