Workplace Turnover –Let’s do the Math
What does it cost your bottom line when you have employee turnover?
U.S. Department of Labor reports that employee turnover cost is between 30% to 200% of a worker’s annual salary.
—Pre-departure Costs


—Termination Costs


—Recruitment Costs


—Training Costs


—Productivity Costs


—Vacancy Costs


—Hidden Costs


The formula:
Multiply the number of employees by turnover rate by wage per hour by hours per week by weeks per year by 30% cost of turnover. This is turnover cost. Divide by Profit Margin. Total is increased sales needed to make up cost of turnover.
25 employees
X turnover rate (36%) (9 employee positions per year)
X hourly rate (8.50)
X hours per week (40)
X weeks per year (52)
X cost of turnover (30%) (number from U.S. Department of Labor)
= total cost of turnover
25 X 36% X $8.50 X 40 X 52 X 30% = $47,736.00
Now, divide by profit margin (20%) (example)
$47,736.00 divided by 20% =
$238,680 Total number of sales needed to make up for turnover.

________ (Number of employees) X _______ (your turnover rate)

________ (weeks per year) X ________ (cost of turnover (30%)

YOUR turnover rate is determined by dividing the number of workers who have left by the number of workers when you have a full staff to carry out the functions of your company.
Example: 10 people have left (three for the same position)
Total number of workers necessary to carry out the functions of your company 37
10 divided by 37 = 27% turnover rate for your company
