Employee turnover Employee turnover refers to the proportion of employees who leave an organisation over a set period (often on a year-on-year basis), expressed as a percentage of total workforce numbers.

At its broadest, the term is used to encompass all leavers, both voluntary and involuntary, including those who resign, retire or are made redundant, in which case it may be described as ‘overall’ or ‘crude’ employee turnover. It is also possible to calculate more specific breakdowns of turnover data, such as redundancy-related turnover or resignation levels, with the latter particularly useful for employers in assessing the effectiveness of people management in their organisations Retention Retention relates to the extent to which an employer retains its employees and may be measured as the proportion of employees with a specified length of service (typically one year or more) expressed as a percentage of overall workforce numbers. Evaluating learning and development.

Center for Evidence-Based Management. 70:20:10 - a model approach for learning? REX/Isopix Every so often a new “flavour of the month” comes along in learning and development (L&D) – and one of the hottest topics among training professionals at the moment is the concept of 70:20:10. Jo Faragher reports. Popularised by consultant and former chief learning officer Charles Jennings, director of the 70:20:10 Forum, the 70:20:10 concept centres around the idea that the majority (or around 70%) of learning comes through experience, around 20% comes from social learning with colleagues and just 10% through formal learning such as classroom training or online courses.

While Jennings himself concedes that this should be “a reference model and not a formula”, the concept continues to generate a lot of debate among L&D professionals, with many claiming to have embraced the model but few actually demonstrating it in practice. Where to start? This is an approach learndirect adopted when it merged with fellow skills, training and employability provider JHP in 2012. Strategic human resource management. This factsheet was last updated in February 2015. What is strategic human resource management? Strategic human resource management (strategic HRM, or SHRM) is an approach to managing human resources that supports long-term business goals and outcomes with a strategic framework.

The approach focuses on longer-term people issues, matching resources to future needs, and macro-concerns about structure, quality, culture, values and commitment. It is necessarily dependent on the evolving nature of work itself, which is explored in our Megatrends series. Strategic HRM: the key to improved business performance explains in detail the various definitions and approaches to HRM, strategy and strategic HRM. The issue of strategic HRM initially came to prominence around the early 1990s, at which time academics developed definitions of strategic HRM as: Ef1330en.
