High staff turnover - can it be reduced?

  • Elzieta Van Staden


There is a saying going around that says ‘nobody is irreplaceable’. This is quite true, but when you lose competent, dependable, highly-qualified staff, this has a whole new meaning. It affects the whole company and its employees. High staff turnover in the healthcare sector is an absolute, undeniable reality, especially in this time of nursing shortages. One can debate about the reasons for the high turnover, but a solution should be found before it becomes a major crisis. Therefore it is important to look at ways/suggestions on how to address this problem.
