Over the last four years more and more companies are admitting to staff retention issues. The last four years has seen a marked increase in staff attrition figures. Moreover, talent retention is the area that has seen the most difficulty with managers and specialists.

It’s clear that the war for talent remains strong in the technology, finance and professional services sectors. Whilst utilities, retail and leisure continue to be the most volatile.

The general rule is, the larger the organisation the longer an employee stays. Regionally the lowest job tenure is in Scotland and London. The highest is in Yorkshire, North West and North East England.

The typical costs for recruitment, onboarding and training mean that staff attrition has a significant impact on any organisation. Furthermore, there are indirect costs such as lost sales and brain drain which incur more loss to a company.

These findings show the importance of recruitment and retention. Employee engagement is often overlooked but it’s only becoming more important as the fight for talent is increasing with the threat of skills shortages.
