This spring, 224 Oakland County employers of all sizes and industries responded to a groundbreaking survey on employee turnover in southeast Michigan.
The results paint a comprehensive picture of the causes of staff turnover in southeast Michigan, as well as potential gaps in the development of career pathways for employees throughout their organizations. This includes barriers people face that inhibit their work success.
You are invited to a special briefing on the survey, to be held on Aug. 6., 2019, at the L. Brooks Patterson Executive Office Building in Waterford. Oakland County Michigan Works! and Workforce Intelligence Network executives will discuss a range of survey findings, including:
Employee turnover rates and related costs
