If you feel stressed trying to hire, manage, and retain your employees, you’re not alone. More than 50% of companies in a global survey say they have a hard time with employee turnover rate.

To add to the stress, losing an employee is incredibly costly, especially in a small business.

Depending on the position at your company, the cost of replacing a single employee is probably much higher than you’d expect:

•  Entry level employee – 16% of annual salary
•  Mid-range employee – 20% of annual salary
•  Executive employee – 213% of annual salary

When you understand why your employees leave, you can take steps to keep them happy and profitable. A little bit of awareness goes a long, long way and can save you a lot of money.
