Job ‘stagnation’ leads to turnover, Glassdoor data shows

Research by Glassdoor has found that employees that stagnate in a job role for too long are likely to leave the company.



The average worker spends 15 months in one role, adding an additional 10 months to this increases the chances of them leaving the company by %%, favouring a move to another business rather than for a role within the company they are already working at.



Company ratings done by Glassdoor themselves were also found to effect the likelihood of staff staying, a one-star increase in their 5 star rating system meant it was 4% more likely an employee would stay with that company. A one-star increase in career opportunities, culture and values ratings on the site, was found to raise the odds that workers stay at their companies by 5%.



Chief economist at Glassdoor, Andrew Chamberlain, explained to HR magazine his advice to companies on how to keep their staff happy and loyal to their business over leaving for pastures new: “Employers that work to improve company culture, offer competitive base pay, and regularly promote and advance employees into new roles will retain them longer. In addition, these findings tell recruiters and employers looking to hire what to focus on to bring candidates in. For example, focusing on passive or active candidates that have been in their roles for quite a while, or who are at companies without strong company culture could help bolster recruiting efforts.”
