The latest XpertHR research shows that voluntary resignation rates stood at an average of 10.1% in 2010, with the highest rates experienced by private sector services companies. We also find that the recession is still having a negative impact on some organisations' labour turnover patterns, although a few employers report a slight improvement in the external job market.
There are a number of tools and techniques that employers can use to support succession planning, including the use of competencies and succession planning committees - but definitive plans are still principally focused on more senior-level roles, our research finds.
Latest IRS research shows that employers experienced a voluntary resignation rate of 8. 6% in 2009 - but our survey finds considerable variation in staff turnover rates according to region, sector and occupation.
