How Do We Calculate All This?

Current Annual Loss


Turnover Cost

In a 2022 article, PeopleKeep states that some studies predict that every time a business replaces a salaried employee, it costs an average of 6 to 9 months. (which is between 50% and 75% of their annual salary - based on US Statistics)
Let's use the mean : 62.5%.

Absenteeism Cost

In 2021, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average absenteeism rate was 3.2%. In other words, with approximately 240 workdays per year (varying per country & company), the average US worker missed an average of 7.6 workdays throughout the year.

Suggested Investment

Studies have shown that when investing between 1-3% of payroll in employee engagement, businesses have experienced up to 41.5% lower turnover rates as well as up to a 41% decrease in employee absenteeism.

Let's use 1%.

Predicted Savings


Turnover Savings

According to a Gallup Workplace report, high-turnover ( >40% ) businesses with engaged workforces have shown up to 24% lower employee turnover rates, whereas low-turnover ( <40% ) businesses achieved up to 59% lower turnover rates. This averages out to a 41.5% turnover rate reduction.

And lets continue with 62.5% of salary for the cost (based on turnover costs).

Absenteeism Savings

According to a Gallup Workplace report, businesses with engaged workforces have lower employee absenteeism rates by up to 41%.

With the average U.S. worker missing 7.6 workdays throughout the year (based on Absenteeism costs), this would mean a highly engaged US worker would have missed 4.5 missed work days throughout the year, 3.1 fewer work days than the average (1.7% absenteeism rate).
