Job Leaving Ratio per Department


The percentage of employees who left their jobs within a specific department over a given time frame. This metric helps identify if there are department-specific issues affecting employee retention. High turnover in specific departments might indicate managerial problems, workload imbalances, or other departmental challenges.


(Number of employees who left a department / Average number of employees in that department during the period) x 100


If the marketing department, averaging 50 employees over the year, sees 5 employees leave, the job leaving ratio for the department is 10%.
