Work that gives them the freedom to choose the best direction for the company they work for. People want to feel that they are apart of a team, not just a regular employee.

Calculating Turnover Rate and the Millennial Paradigm

As Millennials begin to flood the workforce, companies can no longer rely on traditional business practices. Millennials are a group of individuals that are foreign to a traditional work environment. They tend to enjoy their work, rather than slaving away for a salary. Because of this mentality, it’s important for new companies, and existing companies, to begin implementing good business practices. Failure to do so can result in current employees leaving their jobs, or even potential employees from making a decision. Turnover rates can be a tricky subject. Not because the concept is hard to understand, but because they’re many different factors when it comes to calculating it. It's important to understand how to calculate employee turnover.

How To Properly Reduce The Cost Of Employee Turnover

You know how they always say the way to find a smart person is to see what their IQ score is? Well, I’m here to disagree with that statement. In fact, I believe that a person’s EQ (emotional quotient) is far more important, especially when it comes to a workplace environment. Understand that in order to effectively bring the cost of employee turnover down, you must hire individuals with a high EQ. This will allow for a workplace where everyone genuinely cares for not only one another, but also for the company they represent. Think about it. If you were not as like-minded as your co-workers wouldn’t it make you feel like you have no connection with your peers? If you have no connection with your peers how do you expect to create a connection with a company? You see, it all ties to one another.

Lack of Motivation Leads to Employee Turnover

Motivation is a key driving factor for the reason why an individual does a particular action. It’s a steppingstone into a field of productivity and advancement towards a small or large-scale goal. But motivation can be a touchy subject. It’s a much easier said than done type of thing. You can’t really tell someone to do something and expect to get a result out of it. Pure motivation comes from an inner belief that what you’re working for is for a worthy cause. It’s this internal willpower to do great work and produce your best effort every time.
