Employee Tenure Average


The average duration of service among current employees, usually measured in years. It offers insights into the company's stability and workforce experience.

Long tenure averages suggest employee satisfaction, while shorter tenures might indicate issues in retention or a younger, more transient workforce. This KPI provides insights into the depth of institutional knowledge within the organization.


Total years of service for all current employees / Number of current employees


If a company has 100 employees with a combined total of 500 years of service, the average tenure is 5 years.
