Employe turnover is high because wages don't scale with inflation making it impossible for people to start at the bottom and work their way up.

Yea yea get a 1 bedroom and split it with 8 people like you did in the 70's. NOT, because you didn't have to do that in 70's because your money actually had purchasing power.

But I digress.

Retention/turnover, employee engagement and succession planning ranked as the top challenges faced by HR organizations today, according to the 2015 SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey. The survey found 40% of HR professionals cited employee retention/turnover as their top organizational challenge followed by employee engagement at 39%. Another 29% cited concern about finding replacement talent, and 24% of respondents named culture management as their top HR concern - See more at



Let's be honest. Millenial don't want to work. It's not about wages, it's about liberal arts degrees and lack of work ethic.

Oh wait, I forgot. Millenials aren't getting hired! The jobs go to H1-b visas and ilegal, of course after the people with 20 years of experience get their pick of the litter.

Who cares, take your 50k in debt and barista job and work your way up the corporate chain at Starbucks and be glad you have a job and now SHUTUP! Entitled brat!

Do it or join the 25% of your generation who even get a damn job in the first place!

One correction... most of those with 20 yrs experience were shown the door, after training their h1b visa-holding replacements.

Very true!

Had this conversation with someone today. The people with visas work way cheaper!

Thanks for the correction!

And don't forget all the Visas for the employees hired from other countries with free and science based education.

I feel your pain.

I would suspect that staffing services have a lot to do with this problem. They throw all kinds of unacceptable employees into what ever jobs they can without regard to their abilities so they can suck off the paychecks for as long as the employers will keep them, be it a few days, or weeks, or just long enough to "lay them off" before qualifying for unemployment. Of course, if the temp worker starts getting close to being able to qualify for unemployment, suddenly the staffing service doesn't have any work available for the reliable employees. If their client employers still need help, just throw some freshly acquired slackers their way and ignore the guys that are almost to the point of getting unemployment.

Employee turnover is a huge problem where I work. However, the major reason for turnover in our agency is poor supervisors. Basically, they promote the person who has been there the longest. Unfortunately, that does not make a good supervisor. The younger generation does not have the same loyalty to an organization that you see with our more seasoned staff. If they don't like how things are going, they move on. We figured it takes $13,000 to train a new employee at our workplace. That is a chunk of change and a heck of an investment.
