Kansas City, Kan. – With 2017 pay increase budgets stagnant at 2.6 percent, employers are experiencing a rise in voluntary turnover among their staff. With the average voluntary turnover rate reported as 13.4 percent compared to 11.2 percent four years ago, employers must rethink their strategies in recruiting and retaining an engaged workforce in today’s market.
