What would you say if you staff turnover reached 200%?

work out your staff turnover percentageSo, sometimes a client comes to us with a BIG problem.

You think 20% turnover is bad?

Try 200% turnover.

That’s a new organisation every 6 months!

We call these organisations ‘toxic’ (not to their face, obviously!).

Employees don’t stay long enough to even complete probation. Some don’t turn up after the first day or week. And these organisations are some of the best known in their industry, not some awful back-water outfit.

A large part of the problem is that vicious cycle: employees quit so there’s incredible pressure to replace them to get the work done, so the recruitment process is hurried and unrigorous, resulting in poor hires who quit quickly.

Have you ever experienced that vicious cycle where the business wants you hire someone, ANYONE, to get the job done, but the recruitment process is actually accelerating the pace of loss?
