It's happening every day. The signs of discontent are all there, and they are ignored. Workplaces are suffering from unnecessary turnover, unfilled positions, lost customers, overworked staff, and compromised profit.
The numbers don't lie. At over 150 million, there are more people at work in the U.S. than ever before. However, U.S. employees continue to quit for what they see as better opportunities.
In 2018 a staggering 41.4 million U.S. workers voluntarily left their jobs. Nationally, employee voluntary turnover rate exceeded 27%.
Turnover trends demonstrate an 8.3% increase over 2017 and an 88% increase since 2010.
If organizations allow this trend to continue, U.S. voluntary turnover will hit 35% by 2023, placing companies in continuous and enormous risk.
