CHAPEL HILL, N.C., May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The cost to replace an employee can be as high as 2.41% of annual salary, but the long-term cost to the organization's Service-Profit Chain is even higher. A benchmarking report by Best Practices, LLC addresses the effects of turnover on the bottom line and offers insights on how companies can keep their employees engaged to tremendously improve productivity and the overall customer experience. According to data from the report, a reduction in turnover rates by just two percentage points, can result in a savings of $3 million annually. Depending on the level of employees (supervisors versus front-line employees) and the reduction rate, this figure can escalate to savings as high as $40 million annually.
