As the economy begins to rebound, you may notice the person working at the desk next to you this week is not the same person who was there last week. Improving job markets generally cause employees to begin looking for greener pastures.
Turnover is costly. In terms of economic cost, businesses should expect to incur a cost equivalent to about 20 percent of the salary for each departing employee. It is my observation that some companies often struggle to retain good people while others have very little turnover.
