Why Employee Turnover is Hurting Your Business (& how to fix it)

Every time an employee quits, it creates disruption and costs your business approximately 1.5 times his or her salary to replace them.  Therefore 1 person on $65,000 will cost the business $97,500 to replace!   How?

Think about the cost to the business of a disengaged employee, time and cost to recruit a new person, time and cost to train the new employee, time it takes for the new person to build their work capacity to that of the previous employee, let alone the impact on other employees.

But not only does it cost us financially, the overall effect of a high turnover rate can erode both business direction and morale.

According to a Gallup and Forbes survey the 10 top reasons why people leave are controllable by the employer!

So why do people leave?

  1. Relationship with their boss – this is the No. 1 reason.
  2. Bored and unchallenged by the work itself (underwhelmed)
  3. Contribution of work to the business goals – (purpose)
  4. Autonomy and independence (micro-management)
  5. Relationships with co-workers (trust, transparency and courageous conversations)
  6. Opportunity for promotion
  7. Overloaded with work (stressed)
  8. Organization’s financial stability (security)
  9. Vision, purpose and values of the business (knowing the connect between what I do and the company vision)
  10. Overall culture. Management’s recognition of employee job performance. (Acknowledgement)

So we know that replacing an employee can cost up to 1.5 times their annual income but let’s consider the cost if they don’t leave.  If they stay but are not engaged!

For the purpose of the exercise: if you have 20 employees, 10 of which are working at 60% capacity.  We know that people cannot work at 100% capacity all of the time, so let’s assume they work at 80% capacity.

Employees Salary % engaged Paid time not worked Cost to the Business at 100%

 

Cost to the Business at 80%
10 $165,000 60% 40% $260,000 $130,000

 

So what can you do to prevent this?

For a short time we are offering an

Obligation free strategy session (Valued at $550)

whereby we’ll help you create a learning & development strategy plan.

In the process of developing your strategy plan we’ll discuss the following items because they are directly linked to why people leave or why they disengage:

 

  • Getting clear about and how to share your company’s vision, purpose and values.
  • Create a plan to develop your Managers and Leaders in all constructive leadership principles.
  • Build self-awareness through giving employees opportunities to discover their strengths and weaknesses and support them in developing all areas.
  • Understand different personality styles and their needs so you can adapt and be flexible.
  • Engage Managers and Leaders in building relationships using highly developed communication skills.
  • Address issues and conflict effectively and as early as possible.
  • Be clear about expectations and accountabilities to then allow autonomy.
  • Be open to giving and receiving feedback on a regular basis (not just at the end of year performance review)

 

If you have already decided to take advantage of our offer of a free strategy session we’ll get you started straight away.  Simply call us on 0417 982637 or email us.

  1. We’ll set up a time for our strategy session meeting and then we’ll send out a questionnaire for you to complete prior to this meeting. This will give you time to think and allow us to maximise the time we spend together.
  2. In our meeting we’ll discuss your answers in more detail and identify gaps.
  3. We’ll explore and document all the options on how to close these gaps.
  4. I’ll take all this information away and formulate your Strategy Plan
  5. We’ll schedule another time for me to present to you your strategy plan

So don’t hesitate, contact us now on 0417982637 or email us

How L.E Coaching Came To Be: My Story

There I was; sitting in my lounge room looking out the window thinking to myself there has to be more to life than this… Within days, a colleague of mine came to see me. He began talking about an opportunity to join a direct sales company and earn unlimited income while traveling the world. It sounded too good to be true, however I felt compelled to look into the opportunity anyway.

I saw the people that were doing well within the industry and figured if they could do it so could I. I simply had to learn what they did and it would be just a matter of time. Little did I know that the decision to pursue this opportunity would take me on a life changing personal development journey.

Winning an award for Leadership Development in Australia. Awarded at one of our many seminars around the world (maybe Hawaii)

 

The experience was the most difficult and challenging, yet most thrilling and rewarding experience of my life. I was criticised, let down, and confronted as well as encouraged, mentored and supported. It was like being in the wash cycle of a washing machine. Sometimes it was a gentle stirring; sometimes I was flooded with water (emotions) and couldn’t breathe. Sometimes I was actually spinning and then I was hung out on the line to dry.

But in the end, I came out of that cycle a better person and ultimately was successful in this business. I was proud of the achievements resulting from my hard work; numerous overseas trips, company cars, diamonds and enough income to support the whole family and send my children to private school.

I came to realise that to be successful in this business it wasn’t just about me being the best; it was about me coaching and supporting others to be the best they could be. I’ve found this to be true for any leadership role.

As with many aspects of life, eventually this role began to grow a little stale, not offering the new challenges I desired. So, after eight years and realising that my needs weren’t being met any longer I began the transition of establishing my own coaching & facilitating business. As part of the journey, I had attended many personal and professional development courses around the globe. After attending a Tony Robbins seminar in Hawaii I realised it was time for a change. I no longer had the passion or drive to pursue my current journey.

About the same time, I was getting requests from people outside the business to help them with their teams. Friends and family were also encouraging me to broaden my scope and the audience that I could influence.

“If you aren’t growing and developing in some way shape or form, you are dying, and when you start to die, you start to smell” – Anthony Robbins

This is where I think people do themselves a big disservice; when they stay in a job just because it’s what they know and where they feel secure. Life’s rewards go to those who show courage and go out and seek more from life. Yes it is challenging, yes it’s scary, yes it’s facing the unknown but believe me this is where the gold is. You cannot learn about courage from reading it in a book, you have to get out there and face your fears – get on the bike so to speak. This is the place where you become more.

“The fruit is always out on the limbs of the tree”. Andrew Matthews.

I began the second growth spurt of my life. The beginning of L.E Coaching.

I worked with a mentor coach and established my vision, discovered my values and set my purpose. I established a business plan, set goals and started the journey.

Once again, this journey has been challenging, but through persistence, determination and belief in my ability I have managed to open doors and work with some amazing clients, from small business owners through to General Managers of large organisations. I have had various mentors and coaches along the way and have taken on board a huge amount of feedback to tweak my style and the suite of programs and services I offer.

Running a communication workshop with an intact team – so much fun! Nothing like trying to communicate blindfolded…

 

Sometimes I have to pinch myself because I feel so fortunate to do this work. Sometimes I wonder how come I have been so lucky… Though I do prescribe to the words of Brian Tracy; “It’s a funny thing, the harder you work, the luckier you get”.

So yes I have the formal qualifications now to work as a coach, having achieved PCC level coach through the International Coaching Federation with many years of coaching experience. I have many other accreditations and qualifications to support my clients, but that is not all I bring to a coaching intervention. It’s all my life’s experiences, it’s knowing firsthand how challenging and frightening moving out of our comfort zone can be, but also knowing how fulfilling and rewarding taking these challenges can be. That’s where I feel I can offer the most to my clients, the driving force that gets me out of bed motivated and determined each and every day.

How to Ensure You Never Stop Learning and Enriching Your Life

“’Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Gandhi

Wise words to live by, aren’t they? We agree on the point that human beings are meant to continually learn. Every day, you can learn something new, provided you keep your eyes and ears open, and your mind alert ready to accept new knowledge.

However, life does bring with it many challenges making it difficult to always maintain this mindset. Remember learning to overcome the challenge is learning something new in itself. For when that same challenges arises you will be able to deal with it confidently, knowing that you have done it before. Here are a few tips that can be helpful:

How to Resolve Conflicts Effectively and Avoid Long Term Damage to Relationships

It is a fact that humans are social beings. Another fact is that if we have relationships we will have conflict – it is inevitable. Having conflict is a healthy part of relationships and we need not be concerned about the conflict itself but our ability to effectively resolve conflict.

“It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.” – Bruce Wayne, Batman Begins
