What is employee turnover?

What is staff turnover? Actually it's very simple. Employee turnover refers to the number of employees who leave an organization within a certain period of time. It is often expressed as a percentage of the total workforce.


While some level of employee turnover is normal, high levels of turnover can be problematic for organizations. This entails costs. This includes recruitment, training and loss of productivity.


Especially because of the tight labor market in 2024, attracting and retaining staff is essential for an organization to survive. The labor market remains quite tight.

Calculate turnover

To calculate employee turnover, follow this formula:


Employee turnover rate = (Number of employees who left / Average number of employees) x 100%


Calculate employee turnover example:

Suppose a company had 100 employees at the beginning of the year and 10 employees left during the year. At the end of the year the company had 110 employees.

Number of employees who left = 10 Average number of employees = (100 + 110) / 2 = 105


Employee turnover rate = (10 / 105) x 100 ≈ 9.52%

So the employee turnover rate for that year would be 9.52%.
