How to Measure the Impact of Compensation on Retention

Updated: Jul 15, 2019

Higher pay = higher retention? 

Conventional wisdom would agree with this statement, but in reality, this is not always the case. There are many factors that influence turnover and retention other than compensation such as working environment, commuting distance, leadership, etc. 

The million-dollar questions here are: When does compensation critically affect retention? And how can managers measure its impact on retention?

Listen to HCMI CEO, Jeff Higgins, as he answers these questions. More specifically, he covers the following topics:

  • Using analytics to measure the impact of compensation and other elements on turnover and retention

  • What to pay attention to and what to avoid during your analysis

  • A case study on turnover and retention drivers
