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.

We are so excited to begin the process of welcoming our new students to campus in the fall semester – and we are looking forward to helping students make a successful transition to the College of Business. At this time, students should make sure that they have taken care of a few things:

  • Complete each of the items in the To Do List in MyNEVADA
  • Make a plan for housing
  • Register for summer orientation

Once students have paid the Advanced Registration Fee and completed a short survey, they will be placed into classes for the fall semester. At orientation, we will discuss those classes and students will then have the opportunity to make changes to the fall schedule that has been created for them. Attend orientation early in the summer in order to have lots of time to fine tune the fall semester schedule.
