Are you letting the good ones get away? The prevailing attitude that "lower employee turnover is always better" is a myth. In fact, some amount of turnover actually benefits your business. Unlock significant value by quantifying the reduction of high-impact turnover through a case study. Start by tracking attrition of your highest performers rather than the amount of turnover to help focus on retaining those employees most critical to your business.

You will learn:

  • Why the traditional turnover metric is flawed
  • How to create a metric to quantify the impact of turnover
  • How to apply your metric to create change in your organization
2:20-3:00 PM

The case study will explain how AstraZeneca’s workforce analytics team 1) engaged HR and business stakeholders to gain buy-in for the project, 2) used basic statistical tests (correlation, regression, test of differences) to identify relationships between the hiring source and performance outcomes and 3) developed key insights that influenced the hiring process.
