The LeverX experts explain why employees quit and share their insights on retaining the company's best talents.
Why Do Good Employees Quit in Three Years?
Did you know that the employee turnover rate has increased to 53% in the last two years? This is 20% more than before the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Deloitte reports, only 39% of managers and 29% of ordinary employees are satisfied with their professional development in the company. Moreover, 40% of employees leave the company during the first year of employment.
Such indicators make employee retention one of the TOP 3 challenges of today's business.
But why do employees quit? What do businesses do wrong? Is it possible to rectify the situation? At our recent webinar, the LeverX experts considered these questions and shared insights on possible solutions.
We’ll cover the most exciting blocks of the webinar.

Why Do Employees Quit?
According to the Built In report, replacing employees in a technical field costs the company 100-150% of their salaries, and replacing employees in a senior position costs the company 213% of their salaries.
Prevention is better than a cure, but we need to know why they leave to avoid the costs of searching for new experts. You can find this information in the webinar recording.
How Do Companies Retain Employees?
As mentioned, the common reason companies lose their employees is low salaries. Increased wages can retain an expert in the company, but the question is for how long. Besides the money issue, various personal reasons may prompt a search for a new job. These are team climate, no freedom of decision-making, lack of opportunities for self-development, no career advancement, etc.

According to Forbes, companies with comprehensive employee training programs get 24% higher profits and 218% higher revenue per employee. But achieving this target is only possible with comprehensive software.
