Which State Has the Highest Turnover?
Have you ever considered what your employees would do if they were offered a 10% raise elsewhere? Sure, the money is always tempting. But if employees are truly happy and fulfilled in their current roles, they’d probably pass on the offer, right?
We found out from polling over 400,000 anonymous responses in our 2015 Employee Engagement Report that an average of one in four employees would leave if offered a 10% raise elsewhere.
Wisconsin, Missouri, and New York came in at the top of the list, with over half of employees voting yes. Check out the results below:
Why would employees leave? Some of these factors might include:
- Life circumstances
- Lack of appreciation at work
- Lack of professional growth
- Lack of competitive salaries
You might not be able to change life circumstances, such as financial situations and cost of living in your city. But what you do have control over is growing professional and appreciation opportunities for your employees.
