[IPAC-List] Turnover Rates

HI Dennis,

At least part of that difference is due to what counts as turnover.  For BLS, layoffs, temporary shutdowns, and employees going on disability leave count as "separations" whereas none of the three would count in the SHRM turnover rate.  The SHRM rate is similar to the Compensation Force rate, so BLS seems to be the outlier.

Take care,

Looking for Wisdom of the group, does anyone know why the BLS turnover rates tend to run almost double the SHRM and other turnover rates? For example, BLS reports a 43% annual turnover while SHRM an 18%.
