Many employers spend the equivalent of 10 to 25% of their labor budget on replacement costs — the costs to recruit, train and reach baseline productivity — only to start all over again when employees leave, according to new research by Zeynep Ton’s Good Jobs Institute. Organizations are then forced to find more ways to cut costs to account for what should have been avoidable in the first place. There’s another way, and companies can change, says Ton. As she describes in her new book, “The Case for Good Jobs,” large-scale industry leaders like Quest Diagnostics, Mud Bay and Sam’s Club adopted her “Good Jobs” model, which improved pay and schedules, created more valuable work for employees and redesigned their system for better operations and service. The results? Significant reductions in employee turnover, higher sales and improved productivity. Always encouraging, Ton’s recommendations reveal a path to successful systemic change and growth for the organizations and the people within them.
