The Top Four Warning Signs of Employee Turnover


Employee turnover is as costly and damaging as it is inevitable. HR teams have spent generations trying to curb it, and, sadly, today they’re no closer to finding a sure-fire remedy. While organizations may lack a catch-all solution for employee turnover, many have made leaps and bounds when it comes to understanding why employees leave. And understanding the problem is the first step to addressing it.

In order to help organizations cultivate this understanding, Quantum Workplace just released “Top 5 Predictors of Employee Turnover.” The report is a compilation of survey data gathered from over 97,000 professionals and sheds light on just how subtle and nuanced employee turnover predictors can be.

Turnover-focused employers and HR specialists may want to glance over Quantum’s top five…

 1. Lack of Job Satisfaction

Okay – this seems like a no-brainer. But are the symptoms of job dissatisfaction always easy to spot?

2.  Unmet Individual Needs

The challenge for HR: Identifying which needs have the greatest impact on an employee’s willingness to stick with their job.

3. Poor Team Dynamics

This is one of the most challenging predictors to monitor and counteract, especially in large organizations where leadership is delegated and departments are fragmented.

4. Wrong Organization

Sometimes it’s just not the right fit between employee and employer. Which means it’s all the more important that HR understands why certain employees don’t align with the organization.

Explore Quantum’s full report to learn more about the top five turnover predictors and, most importantly, get tips for stopping employee turnover in its tracks.

Transparent Talent AcquisitionToo often, transparency in the talent acquisition process is like Big Foot – much talked about but rarely, if ever, seen.

Check out the article in Entrepreneur for Reeves’ full run-down.

Creating a Transparent Talent Acquisition Process

The best time to establish transparent talent acquisition and retention processes? As soon as an employee or candidate walks through your company’s door. Using HR materials like offer letters and total rewards statements is the best place to start.

What do offer letters and benefit packages have that help create a transparent, employee-first company culture?

  • Empathetic, candidate-centric messaging
  • Engaging design and rich media formats
  • Intuitive, mobile-friendly interfaces

Take a look at how some companies have already started adapting their talent acquisition processes to be more transparent and empathetic.

Building a community within the organization by hiring great people, keeping employees engaged and continually communicating company values and missions.
