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 SEB, we estimate average tenue could be increased by 140 days with effective retention programs. We base this number on a comparison of SEB to other similar companies.
What is driving turnover at SEB?
Employee turnover at Seb is primarily driven by in-demand employee skills and employee seniority. The employees are not as in-demand as employees at other companies. Employee turnover is lower at companies that employs skills that are in lower demand. Some of the most in-demand employee skills include: 1. Customer service skills 2. Problem solving skills 3. Leadership skills 4. Technical skills 5. Social skills. Its employees have been in their career for a longer period of time than average. Employees with more experience tend to leave the company less often than their less experienced coworkers. This could be because employees who have been with the company for a longer time are likely to have a better understanding of the company's culture and the expectations that are expected of them.
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%.
