[IPAC-List] Turnover

Thu Aug 9 10:27:11 EDT 2018

SHRM has been running articles on "ghosting:" new hires fail to show up, or they start work and then disappear.  They do not communicate their intentions to the employer.  These could be further indicators of an emerging trend of applicant disinterest in "less attractive" jobs.  Maybe this trend  is a consequence of the economy being close to full employment.

A quick note. NYS has seen a decrease in the number of applicants for certain exams in the past 3 or so years. The numbers show a spike around 2010, that I would attribute to the 2008 meltdown. The spike lasted until approx. 2016. The exams I have looked at were for the less attractive job titles.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago has experienced a marked increase in the number of job offer declinations and turnover in the past five years.  As the same time we are experiencing smaller applicant pools for original entrance recruitments.  We're interested in learning if other agencies are noticing a similar trend and if it has resulted in changes in your selection processes, employee benefits, etc.
