HR departments stand to gain a lot by tracking employee turnover. Valuable data can be collected and deeper insights drawn to reveal the potential source of the turnover, whether it be job dissatisfaction or other more personal reasons. This key HR metric can help companies assess and prioritize changes or adjustments to their culture or practices in order to decrease attrition and ensure retention of employees in the future. Ultimately, employee turnover can result in the wasting of resources and training, as well as put a drain on your company’s bottom line.

While this is inevitable, the key to dealing with common employee relations issues is having a plan and multiple supports in place so that when issues do arise, they can be addressed swiftly and effectively.
