In any business, experiencing a high rate of turnover can be detrimental and frustrating for everyone involved in that kind of work. And certain industries tend to have more turnover and experience a bigger negative impact when turnover occurs. When you understand the risks that your industry is facing, it can help you to adjust your policies and behaviors so that your business can be more successful and mitigate those risks.


According to TruePlan, turnover within the tech industry has been on the rise over the past several years, and that trend doesn’t seem likely to stop. One of the major issues in this industry with turnover is that many employees will seek out new employment that provides better compensation, more reasonable hours, or better benefits packages. You can mitigate this risk by offering a competitive salary and benefits package that grows with your employees. If you do experience a high rate of turnover within this industry, it can be financially devastating for your company, so you want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to retain employees.

Health Care

The healthcare industry has begun to see a high level of turnover over the past few years. This can be devastating for many health care providers because it can cause problems for their relationships with patients and employees. Patient Bond reminds us that patients may lose trust when they no longer see their preferred doctor. This means that if your doctors and other staff are constantly leaving for new employment, it can decrease your patient pool and make it difficult to provide adequate care for all your patients.

Food Service

It probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the food service industry experiences a high amount of turnover. This is often because employees in this industry move on to work with better compensation after a while in food services. This can be seen particularly clearly in 2022 in the sheer lack of food service employees available to cover a variety of shifts. Like most industries, the better you treat your employees within this industry, the more likely they will be to stay in their positions.

Taking care of your employees is an essential part of lowering your turnover rates. It also helps to have reasonable milestones that your employees can reach to increase their compensation. These tools can help you to keep your staff, which can reduce costs and prevent disruption to your operations.
