3 Ways to Help Your Clients Reduce Turnover

In July 2019, 3.6 million people quit their jobs according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey. That’s the highest number of individuals who voluntarily left their workplace in a given month since the BLS started tracking the metric in December 2000.

Every business experiences employee turnover—there’s no way to avoid it. But in today’s tight labor market, employers need to put their best foot forward in order to attract desirable candidates and keep their top performers. Check with your clients to see if they’re using the following tactics to help reduce turnover at their organization.

Hire Good, Quality People

Sounds like a no-brainer, right? To help ensure you’re getting quality candidates, implement an employee referral program in which your current employees are rewarded in some way for recommending applicants. Employee referral programs can reduce the time it takes to fill open positions and yield higher quality candidates who stay longer. LinkedIn’s recent Global Talent Study showed that 48% of businesses say their high-quality candidates come from employee referrals.

Offer Competitive Pay

Labor costs are by far the biggest expense for most companies, but it’s important not to overspend in order to attract new talent. Research the average pay rate offered by your competitors for similar jobs—a task made easier thanks to online sites such as Glassdoor—and take location into consideration before establishing a baseline salary. As your budget allows, try bumping up that baseline a bit to make the position even more attractive.

It’s equally as important not to underspend when retaining your top performers. Your workforce is your top asset and investing in their wellbeing should be a top priority. A competitive salary (or bonus!) can incentivize your employees to do their best while helping with morale and productivity.

Get The Right Mix of Benefits

The absence of benefits or the wrong benefits can drive up turnover rates. Employers need to pay particular attention to ensure they’re offering the right mix of benefits for a multigenerational workforce. Take it a step further than the traditional medical and dental options. For instance, would you consider your workplace a “wellness” company? Do you offer financial wellbeing seminars? Is telecommuting or working remotely an option as needed? Each generation prioritizes different benefits, so offering a good mix is a sure-fire way to attract talent.

Start reducing turnover, today.

How to Help Your Clients Prove Their Value to the C-Suite

HR professionals are sitting on a goldmine of data, but they’re constantly fighting an uphill battle when it comes to proving their value to the C-suite. For starters, they aren’t data scientists and often lack the support, resources and budget needed to make sense of the data, let alone measure its financial impact.In 2015, 20% of business leaders trusted HR to use data to anticipate and help fill talent needs. By 2018, that number dropped to only 11%. The problem is twofold: some HR teams (especially if you are a solo practitioner) still spend too much time on transactional HR functions that should be automated. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for much else. Secondly, HR often doesn’t have the tools they need to access or interpret...
