    Workplace Investigations -

    Did you know that 75 percent of the reasons employees leave their jobs could be prevented by employers? In the first scientific study of its kind, Work Institute analyzed more than 234,000 exit interviews over eight years. Recent findings will be shared to help you prevent turnover in your workplace. This session reveals the truth about the employee marketplace and separates the real reason why employees quit – and it’s most often, not about money.

    Key Take-Aways

    • Over 95% of the time employees quit for one of ten top categories of reasons.
    • Most – 75% – of the reasons employees quit can more likely be prevented by employers.
    • Employee market conditions have impacted the trends in reasons why employees quit and the ability for organizations to attract and retain talent.
    • Employee turnover is costly, disruptive and impedes growth for organizations not committed to employee retention.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn the top 10 categories of reasons why employees quit.
    • Discover detailed insights into why most reasons for turnover are preventable.
    • Review the market dynamics that have impacted the ability of organizations to attract and retain talent.
    • Understand the realities – pros and cons – of using benchmark data to guide your retention strategies.
