LHSC is proud of its ability to attract and retain the best people to provide excellent health care to our patients. Staff turnover rate is a critical measure of Human Resources' ability to fill and retain positions with the most suitable candidates for the job. It is a measure of the attrition of staff through voluntary or involuntary termination. Turnover is costly, not only from a monetary perspective, but also from a time and productivity perspective, often costing employers 1.5 times an employee's salary to replace that employee. The above graph represents staff who voluntarily and involuntarily left the hospital as a percentage of total staff. Turnover is consistently relatively low and stable. The hospital examines reasons for turnover with the aim to prevent turnover of key employees.
