Voluntary Turnover in US – It costs $1 Trillion per year and 52 percent of them think that something could have done

A trillion dollars.

That’s what U.S. businesses are losing every year due to voluntary turnover. And the most astounding part is that most of this damage is self-inflicted.

Here’s how it breaks down for an individual organization:

The annual overall turnover rate in the U.S. in 2017 was 26.3%, based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The cost of replacing an individual employee can range from one-half to two times the employee’s annual salary — and that’s a conservative estimate.
So, a 100-person organization that provides an average salary of $50,000 could have turnover and replacement costs of approximately $660,000 to $2.6 million per year.

The cost of replacing an individual employee can range from one-half to two times the employee’s annual salary.

Add a highly competitive and tight labor market to the mix, and most organizations probably can’t survive the loss of good people.

It’s About More Than Money

Voluntary turnover costs money. But, as any leader or manager knows, turnover has many costs that never register directly on a spreadsheet.

Losing your best people means losing your reliable winners, your constant innovators and your most effective problem solvers.

Internally, it breaks down team morale. Externally, it can mean lost customer relationships. Depending on the quality of the exit, it can threaten your brand or, at worst, lead to litigation.

Losing your best people means losing your reliable winners, your constant innovators and your most effective problem solvers.
When it comes to rare talent, “voluntary turnover” is simply a nice way of saying, “You just lost the future.”

Most Regrettable Turnover Is Eminently Fixable

You might think this is all part of the natural churn of talent. But, according to Gallup research, it’s not.

Fifty-two percent of voluntarily exiting employees say their manager or organization could have done something to prevent them from leaving.
