Your HR department is sitting around a table, perplexed by a recent spike in quits. Is it a manager issue, a pay issue, a new competitor in town?
Maybe more team activities are proposed or an expanded benefits package. The exit interviews are mixed and filled with hearsay. The last employee satisfaction score was respectable. All you really know is that it was not this bad last year according to your reports. Any attempt to fix the problem will certainly cost money, and how many attempts are you going to take before the budget runs out? Too many mistakes, and the next employee to leave will be you. Yes, you definitely have a problem, but the problem is not your turnover; it is that you have no perspective outside your own company data.
