The number of new hires and turnovers as well as their gender and age distributions in 2021 are shown in the table below.
To reduce the turnover rate, we need to understand and determine the reason why employees are leaving the company. The best way to learn this is by conducting exit interviews before an employee leaves to clarify the reason for their resignation and find the root cause. The information we gather from these exit interviews will allow us to share and discuss with hiring managers to find solutions to reduce the turnover rate. Moreover, we provide career consulting to departing employees, and some of them withdraw their resignation following the exit interview.
|Total number of new employee hires||484||423||437||549|
|Total employee turnover rate||11.32||8.80||7.39||10.8|
|Voluntary employee turnover rate||9.6||7.8||6.9||9.7|
