Employee Retention Rate Over Some Period of Time

Employee Retention Rate is employee loyalty key performance indicator that shows the number of employees staying in the company expressed as percentage.  Retention Rate can be calculated by the following formula:

Employee Retention Rate = Actual Headcount for particular period of time /Total Number of Employees at the end of Measurement Period

Actual Headcount= Total Number of Employees at the end of Measurement Period – Number of Separations during Measurement Period

Suppose you need to calculate Employee Retention Rate on quarterly basis from September 1 to November 30. On November 30 you have 350 employees (Total Number of Employees at the end of Measurement Period). During this quarter 7 employees retired (Number of Separations). The Employee Retention Rate will be calculated as follows:

Actual Headcount= Total Number of Employees at the end of Measurement Period – Number of Separations during Measurement Period = 350 – 7 = 343

Employee Retention Rate (per Quarter) = Actual Headcount for particular period of time (per quarter) /Total Number of Employees at the end of Measurement Period (per Quarter) = 343/350 = 0.98 = 98%

Some of employers bring in gifts, benefits, different vacation options, office parties, dinner certificates. Satisfied employees tend to keep working in the company with good results. It will reduce turnover rate and save expenses for hiring new employees.
