Workforce Analytics Can’t Wait — The High Cost of Recruitment & Retention

Public sector agencies are in constant competition with the private sector for talented and diverse applicants. At the same time, employees are job hopping in search of higher pay and greater flexibility. The number of people changing jobs has been increasing with up to 40% of employees leaving within the first year. While agencies devote considerable time, effort and resources to hiring, they often overlook the other side of the talent coin — retention (and its evil twin, turnover).
