What is "Avoidable" turnover?

What is driving turnover at Ubisoft?
Employee turnover at Ubisoft is primarily driven by in-demand employee skills and employee seniority. Their employees are in high demand by other businesses. Employees stay with these companies for a longer time, meaning that less talented employees are recruited and hired. Companies with lower in-demand employee skills typically have lower employee turnover. In other words, employees stay with these companies for a longer time, meaning that less talented employees are recruited and hired. The median employee in this company has less experience than the median employee at other companies. The employees with the least experience leave the company more frequently than the employees with the most experience. There are a few reasons why this might be the case. First, junior employees may be more likely to feel unhappy in their job and be eager to find a new one. Finally, junior employees may have less opportunity to have an impact on the company, which could lead to feelings of frustration and unhappiness.
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%.
