Why Companies Lose Good People

Presenter: Mark Hopkins, Regional Vice President, LandCare

It’s almost impossible to build or sustain a healthy business without consistency within its workforce. This is true for both management and field level positions.

Besides making it difficult to grow a business, employee turnover is a direct hit to the bottom line. On average, it cost 20% to 40% of an employee’s annual wage to replace them. This cost comes in many forms, but one thing is certain, excessive turnover is an expense no business can afford.

Good team members leave for a variety of reasons with a few of the most common being;
-Loss of faith and confidence with their leader
-Too little coaching, training and feedback
-Feeling undervalued and/or unappreciated

While there aren’t any silver bullets for employee retention, there are a few key areas in which you can focus. For example:
-Hire the right people in the first place
-Provide transparency
-Create career paths

In this webinar we will cover some of the key reasons good people leave their companies, the impact this has upon the business and some ways to retain these team members.
