Employee Turnover can be extremely costly in terms of both dol­lars and time. Our clients esti­mate that turnover can cost any­where from $5,000 to $15,000 per employee. Add to that addi­tional costs, such as the loss of rev­enue, employee morale and more and you are look­ing at some big numbers.

There is a great oppor­tu­nity in the early days and weeks after an employee is hired to reduce turnover by con­sis­tently set­ting expec­ta­tions and estab­lish­ing an envi­ron­ment that is wel­com­ing and pro­duc­tive for your new employee.

Below are some tips to follow: 

• Treat employee reten­tion as a com­pet­i­tive advantage.

• View find­ing and hir­ing the best can­di­date as your first oppor­tu­nity. Uti­lize the idea of max­i­miz­ing their launch into your orga­ni­za­tion as your sec­ond opportunity.

Keep read­ing for more tips from the experts at Com­pli.

• Wel­come new hires. Com­mu­ni­cate with them, under­stand expec­ta­tions on both sides. Also hold each other account­able and ensure that key hir­ing and com­pli­ance require­ments are met and documented.

• Main­tain ongo­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion with new hires through­out the ori­en­ta­tion and train­ing process and clearly explain “what’s in it for both of you.”

• Keep new hires as long term employ­ees by main­tain­ing the same suc­cess­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tion and doc­u­men­ta­tion pro­to­col for the life of their employment.

By fol­low­ing the above tips you will be able to tackle turnover woes and enjoy a hap­pier and more pro­duc­tive workforce.
