323. Why Top Talent Leaves and How to Fix It

Nov 1, 2021 | 0 comments

Over a trillion dollars were lost to voluntary turnover in the USA last year alone. Replacing an employee costs an average of between 1.5 and 2 times their annual salary – and that’s a conservative estimate. The salt in the wound? 52% of people who leave for a new job say that their management could have done something to keep them. So, how can you help your organization avoid becoming part of these unfortunate statistics? 

Can you give yourself permission to make your world so big that, when someone steps into it, they can have everything they want and never need to leave? 

Do you know the right questions to ask during the hiring process, questions that make instant connections and enable you to make a true commitment to each other that benefits both parties?

As you listen to this episode, pay attention to how simple it can be to turn turnover around – and if you’re the employee in this equation, know what you need to ask from your employer to make your job one that you never want to leave. Finding your ONE Thing could be easier than you think.
