How to reduce the hidden cost of employee turnover

first_imgAlthough turnover in the credit union industry has remained steady at about 12 percent for the last three years, in some regions like the Southwest, it has climbed as high as 19 percent. And while some turnover can be good for a company, giving you the opportunity to bring in new talent, it still has a massive financial impact on the industry.A recent study by the Cornerstone Credit Union League showed that turnover in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas credit unions cost them more than $68 million in 2013. And if you consider that it costs between 50 and 150 percent of an employee’s salary in replacement costs, we could be looking at numbers into the low billions industrywide.The three main reasons employees are leaving credit union jobs? Better pay, opportunities to advance and dissatisfaction with managers. Here’s what you can do to reduce them.Compensation MattersIn 2011, the Ron Volper Group conducted a cross-industry study that confirmed that dissatisfaction with compensation was the number one reason for turnover. And, the study continued, 80 percent of employees who moved to a new company did so to take a higher paying position. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Clarke spitting mad with Popov

first_img Popov faces a three-match ban as a result of the incident, which came early in the second half after he had exchanged angry words with Spurs defender Kyle Walker. Clarke confirmed disciplinary action will be taken against the Macedonia international, adding that his dismissal played a large part in Albion’s 1-0 defeat at The Hawthorns. “The game changed with the sending-off. I’m absolutely disgusted with Goran’s behaviour,” Clarke said. “One of the group has let the players down. It changed the whole complexion of the game. It’s difficult enough in the Premier League playing against 11 players, especially when you’re playing against Tottenham. “There’s no excuse for that. There’s no place for it in life, never mind on a football pitch. “I would like to think that at some stage he will apologise. As always there will be disciplinary procedures taken against the player but they’ll remain in-house.” A second-half goal from Gareth Bale earned victory for Spurs, who are now only a point behind third-placed Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas echoed Clarke’s sentiments. “It’s difficult for the ref, but Popov did what he did and Walker did nothing to react,” he said. “It’s difficult to assess but I think Mark Clattenburg made the right decision. It’s horrible and nasty.” West Brom head coach Steve Clarke slammed defender Goran Popov following his sending-off for spitting, admitting he was “absolutely disgusted”.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

NWFL Condemns Police Attack on Taraba Queens *Urges state to pay players…

first_imgThe Nigerian Women Football League (NWFL) has condemned the recent police attack on players of Taraba Queens at the Taraba State Government House allegedly on the orders of the government.Players of FC Taraba and Taraba Queens were last Thursday assaulted by the Nigeria Police during a peaceful protest demanding their almost one and half year unpaid salaries in Jalingo, the state capital.The football players had gathered at the State House to protest their unpaid salaries and in the process stopped visitors and staff from entering the premises.The players accused the Taraba State government of deliberately refusing to pay their salaries and bonuses despite the recent bailout funds it received from the Federal Government.Police personnel attached to the Taraba State Government House and other security officials swooped on the players armed with horsewhips, rifles and tear gas and in the process three players were injured while several others were detained.  Speaking on the development, NWFL Chairperson, Aisha Falode said, “we don’t want to believe that the government will direct the police to beat up footballers, who came to demand for their salaries and bonuses. “These are breadwinners of their families and you can imagine what they have gone through all the period they have not been paid for their labour. “I want to appeal to Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku to look into this case and bring everybody involved in the ill-treatment of the players to book. “We believe that Governor Ishaku, who is a loving father, did not send anybody to beat up these girls, who are Nigeria’s mothers of the future. It is the handiwork of some overzealous officials, who must be made to realise and respect the sanctity of womanhood,” concludes the NWPL chief.Taraba Queens FC is a Nigerian Women Professional League (NWPL) team based in Jalingo and owned by the Taraba State government. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
