Calculating the Cost of Employee Turnover

Businesses need to know how much turnover costs their organization.  The Center for Economic Policy and Research  Turnover Calculator  allows businesses to calculate the turnover costs for different categories of workers. Answers to questions about wages, weekly hours and recruiting and hiring costs are best if they come from human resources professionals or business owners who handle their own staffing.
