The Ultimate Job Security

       Employee turnover – particularly good employees who quit – is a problem that plagues many organizations.  But even involuntary turnover – layoff and discharges – can hurt employers and the economy, not to mention those who are laid off or discharged.  In fact, involuntary turnover rates are as high as 25% to 30% annually in some industries, most notably construction and hospitality.  So what is one to do?  

       I guess you try to get hired by the federal government, that’s what.  USA Today published some government involuntary turnover statistics recently, and it’s quite revealing.  In the 10 federal departments or agencies that employ 1,000 or more, the annual involuntary turnover rate from September 2009 to September 2010 was slightly under a measly 0.1% – that’s one tenth of one percent!  Quite a difference from those stated above, isn’t it?  So take my advice: if you want real job security, get hired by the federal government…
