Do you know your employee’s “shelf life” at work?
On average, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, an employee will stay with an employer for 4 years.
If that employee is between 25-34, it’s just under 3 years.
This means that over a 45 year professional career most people will work for >10 employers.
Which means that judging culture and engagement by employee retention might be missing a massive opportunity.
So what if, instead of simply developing your employees so that they stay, you develop employees who’ll be incredible brand ambassadors when they leave.
What if your former employees were your best source of new talent development?
