Mercer Turnover Survey – Employee Separations image

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.

Optimize your current and future strategies with the Canada Mercer Turnover Survey. Using data on voluntary turnover, involuntary turnover, and retirement turnover statistics, compare your organization against your competitors. Identify turnover rates across numerous skill levels. Benchmark your talent strategy against all organizations, or narrow the data by:

  • Industry
  • Region
  • Employee group
  • Job function
Are you ready to minimize your company’s turnover?

Salary Survey Methodology
Mercer surveys are designed using the most accurate and up-to-date market data practices. Data is collected from HR professionals at participating organizations and then analyzed for validity, thoroughness, and market representation based on the organization’s size, structure, geographic region, or a combination of these factors. A minimum number of incumbents, organizations, and distinct organizations are required in order to report each data element. If minimums are not met, the market data is suppressed, ensuring you the highest level of data confidentiality.
