People leave their positions for any number
of reasons. They might be moving to a new
state to support a spouse, looking to advance
in their careers or seeking a better fit for their
talents and personalities. Whatever the cause,
high rates of turnover can carry heavy negative
consequences for enterprises - which is why HR
departments have an important role in keeping
these figures under control.
Recent research from Bersin by Deloitte outlined one of the more surprising factors that can heighten turnover: an improving economy. When job conditions get better throughout the country, employees may be more likely to reconsider their options.
