 CK 31/07/2009 12:27:26 That is how many new staff hired and existing staff fired/resigned for a month. Edit | Delete

 Jacqueline jacqueline@mgyear.com.my 31/07/2009 15:14:06 What i am trying to say is % computation of monthly labor turnover. Edit | Delete

 CK 31/07/2009 23:00:57 Labour turnover = No. of staff leaving per month ---------------------------------------- X 100 = % Total No. of staff Edit | Delete

 CK 31/07/2009 23:02:00 Labour turnover = No. of staff leaving per month / Total No. of staff X 100 = % Edit | Delete

 Unsure 04/08/2009 10:55:28 1. Total No. of staff at beginning of month or end of month?2. What about staff recruited during the month? Edit | Delete

 CK 04/08/2009 14:51:21 Take an avarage total no. of staff = (No. of staff at the beginning of month + no. of staff at the end of month) / 2 Edit | Delete

 Unsure 04/08/2009 17:19:12 For example:Beginning of month = 100 employeeTotal left = 20End of month = 100-20 = 80Average no. =(100+80)/2 = 90So, the turnover rate should be (20/90) x 100 = 22.2% and not (20/100)x100 = 20% turnover? Edit | Delete

 CK 05/08/2009 22:54:13 Exactly. Edit | Delete

 KL Siew 06/08/2009 12:28:34 CK, that's interesting. Doesn't 22.2% work out to be at least 22 persons left instead of 20 persons that actually left? Edit | Delete

 CK 06/08/2009 12:53:52 Hi Siew, it's a formula portraying the "average" outflow of the staff over a month in % by taking into account the joining of new staff during the month. I found the formula from a book by a Canadian writer. I agree that it sounds controversial though. =^> Edit | Delete

 KL Siew 06/08/2009 13:58:17 I see, thanks, CK. I tend to use the rule of thumb. Edit | Delete
