Penarth Daily news panics when presented with facts. Independence in doubt!!
Vale staff who have chosen to leave voluntarily are asked why. That’s good management practise.
You can see the report that’s being quoted, (but not referenced), by putting this link into your search engine.
The comments are based on responses from only 19 of the 214 people who left between April to September 2015.
So managers were asked, and they thought, that 42% left because of,”career development”, 26% were looking for alternative employment because of, “personal, family, or social”, reasons, and 16% because of,”working hours”.
“Nothing would entice me to stay”, is surely another way of saying, “I’ve made my mind up”.
The report also looks at how the Vale compares with other authorities. In the public sector the average voluntary turnover rate is 11.5%. The total average labour turnover rate for public sector organisations was 14.1%.
The turnover rate for the Vale of Glamorgan Council for 2014/15 was below these comparisons with an overall turnover of 8.64%.
