Voluntary Turnover Rate
What is meant by Voluntary Turnover Rate?
Voluntary Turnover means the turnover in a company that happens when an employee willingly decides to leave his/her current job position due to better job opportunities, better pay, better environment, etc. This type of turnover turns out to be high-priced for the company because it does not include any of the company’s plans and they sometimes lose high-performing employees. The Voluntary Turnover Rate is the measurement that defines the number of employees who left the company voluntarily in a year or a specific period.
How to calculate Voluntary Turnover Rate?
