Introducing the Turnover Insight

Understanding factors linked to turnover in your organization is the first step in reducing involuntary attrition. Our Turnover Insight helps you identify such factors to then build effective interventions.

Designing a retention strategy requires in-depth exploration of factors associated with turnover in your organization.

Here’s how Orgnostic’s Turnover Insight detects these factors and suggests actions to build an effective retention strategy.

What is the Turnover Insight?

The Turnover Insight tells you a story about factors often associated with turnover in your organization. It also tells you about chained turnover events, which are instances of people in your organization leaving soon after their close peers or direct managers leave.

Turnover Insight overview

The Turnover Insight lets you explore the factors associated with turnover across different locations, teams, and departments.

Let’s dive into how this insight works and how you can use it to your advantage.

How does the Turnover Insight work?

The Turnover Insight will appear on your Home page if you have your HRIS source connected to the Orgnostic platform.

You will see this insight if you have accumulated enough turnover events in your HRIS and if our model managed to find patterns in such events.

For a quick walkthrough of key pieces of information you get with the Turnover Insight, hear from Mirta Stantic, our Director of Product, Insights:

The Insight looks into historical data on turnover and other factors temporally associated with it.

We’re currently focusing on factors related to salary practices in your organization, as well as factors related to chained turnover events.

The list of factors we investigate will continue to grow as we discover new bits and pieces of your turnover story.

Each factor is more or less frequently associated with turnover events at your company. We quantify this as a proportion of contribution to our Turnover Insight model. If a factor’s proportion of contribution is high, you should consider that factor when designing your retention strategy.
