## Definition – What is employee turnover?

Employee Turnover is the rate that employees leave the organization through the year.

An employee turnover of 100% means that each position in the company will be emptied and refilled every 12 months.

An employee turnover of 200% means that each position in the company will be emptied and refilled every 6 months.

An employee turnover of 10% means that 10% of the positions in a company will be emptied and refilled every 12 months.

A high employee turnover means that the same position in an organization is left empty and filled many times through the year. A low employee turnover means that few employees are leaving the organization.

## Formula – How to calculate employee turnover

Employee Turnover = Employees that left the organization / ((Employees at Beginning of Period + Employees at End of Period) / 2) x 100

### Example

At the start of the year, a business had 35 employees. At the end of the year they had 37. During this time a total of 5 people left the organization.

Employee Turnover = (5 / ((37 + 35) / 2)) x 100% = (5 / (72 / 2)) x 100% = (5 / 36) x 100% = 0.1389 x 100% = 14.89%

Therefore, in this year the company had a turnover rate of 14.89%.
