You do not want to lose the investment of your HR in finding a good worker and train him or her to start being an efficient member of your workforce.

Remember that other people are looking for good employees that you have to compete with them.

The “Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) “revealed in a recent press release that the answer to the question about the people’s plans when the job market will become hotter and more jobs would be available. A majority of the surveyed HR managers answer that turnover will increase significantly when job offers rise.

SHRM and did the survey, included 451 HR professionals and 300 executives and managers.

“We’re surprised by the percentage of executive employees who say they plan to jump ship once hiring rebounds,” says Tony Lee, editor in chief/general manager of “And with 56 percent of HR professionals agreeing that turnover will rise, we’re interested to see what types of retention efforts those companies launch to keep their best employees on board.”

Employees noted the following top reasons that will make them begin looking for a new job:

  • Fifty-three percent will open the search for better wages and benefits.

  • Thirty-five percent expressed that dissatisfaction of the potential to develop their career.

  • Thirty-two percent think that they are ready for a change and new experience.

Some HR professionals answered that a program or policy for retaining your employees would need to have

  • Sixty-two percent offer tuition reimbursement.

  • Sixty percent offer competitive benefits like vacation and holiday.

  • Fifty-nine percent use competitive salaries.

Most (71 percent) of the experts surveyed in big organizations, 500 employees think that. The employment market will have a direct influence on turnover. Low employment will keep people in their jobs, and high demand for workforce will increase voluntary turnover.

Forty-one percent of small companies (1-99 employees) HR staff think that turnover will increase when the market is looking for more employees. Fifty-three percent responded of medium companies (100-499) thought the same as the small companies people.
