Unplanned turnover

Core unplanned turnover measures the rate at which organisations lose permanent staff due to reasons the organisation has not planned for such as resignations, retirements and dismissals. Unplanned turnover can be used as an indicator of organisational health – less engaged staff are more likely to leave an organisation. Table 5.1 shows that core unplanned turnover across the Public Service has been steady since 2011, at around 11%. The unplanned turnover rate for female staff is around one percentage point higher than for male staff.
