What is "Avoidable" turnover?
Employee turnover is normal. Employees come and go for many reasons, including personal reasons and reasons that have nothing to do with a specific company. In addition, turnover is known to be high in some industries and for some job types. So how much can a company actually do to improve retention? This differs from company to company but we estimate this number. For Playrix, we estimate average tenue could be increased by 267 days with effective retention programs. We base this number on a comparison of Playrix to other similar companies.
What is driving turnover at Playrix?
Employee turnover at Playrix is primarily driven by in-demand employee skills and company size. This company is searching for employees with certain key skill sets that are in high demand. Employers with lower in-demand employee skills typically have lower employee turnover. Employees are more likely to stick around if their job is not too stressful or if they are well-liked by their colleagues. With less stress in their lives, employees are more likely to be content with their job and stay with the company for a longer period of time. Additionally, if the employees do leave, it is likely for more interesting job opportunities. Playrix may have a smaller number of employees or be a smaller company than average. Employees are more loyal to their employers at smaller companies. It also means that employees are less likely to leave for another job, which can be beneficial to the company's reputation and bottom line. With lower employee turnover, employers can save money on recruitment and training costs.
The numbers reported here are based on statistical analysis of publicly available employment data of current and past employees of the company. We determine mean tenure based on how long past employees have stayed at the company and how long current employees have been employed. We determine the annual turnover percentage as (1/tenure * 100). We analyse a sample of the employees at a company. We make an effort to sample in a representative way but some bias is unavoidable. Some types of employees may be overrepresented in our sample based on their job, their online activity, and their geographic location. We expect our number to have a confidence interval of approximately 1 year. In other words, if the mean tenure reported is 4 years, the true value lies between 3 and 5 with 98% confidence. Similarly if the average turnover reported is 20% we expect the true value to be between 15% and 25%.
