As an HR professional, you know that managing employee turnover is essential to the short- and long-term success of your organization. While some turnover may be beneficial by way of revitalizing or fine-tuning your workforce, it can also bring about unexpected interruption to ongoing projects, succession planning setbacks, and costly recruiting cycles. Understanding turnover rate norms and where your organization’s metrics may not align to the market is a good way to start optimizing your talent management strategies to ensure retention of critical employees and skills.

Identify turnover rates across numerous skill levels with the Canada Mercer Turnover Survey. Benchmark against all organizations, or narrow the data by industry and employee group. Compare your staffing and workforce retention metrics to your labor market competitors, using data on:

  • Hiring rates.
  • Voluntary turnover.
  • Involuntary turnover.
  • Retirement separations. Are you ready to reinforce your company’s talent strategy?
