bonus packages for leaving
the associated cost for managing the role when it is not filled e.g extra working hours
loss in productivity during the vacancy period
errors in customer service
loss in sales, for a salesperson - that will lead to decreased revenue and increased costs
cost of hiring a new employee
cost of training and cost of onboarding period of the new person
loss of engagement from the other employees
reputation - if the organization cannot retain employees then what does that say about the brand, and the company - turnover decrease
culture - indirect impact on the financial results of an organization
The companies will experience some level of employee turnover no matter the employee retention policy in place. In the long term, the companies should focus on the right employee retention policy to diminishing the impact on profitability, culture, and productivity.
