The annual staff turnover in the Dutch hotel and catering industry is 40 percent. This costs the sector 1.4 billion euros per year, or around 6 percent of its total turnover, ABN Amro said in a report on Tuesday. Better working conditions can reduce this, according to the bank, NU.nl reports.
Employees in healthcare are increasingly resigning to go work elsewhere, either at another healthcare institution or in a different sector entirely. Absenteeism in healthcare is also at the highest point in five years, according to figures by research agency EY, NOS reports.
Staff turnover in healthcare is currently over 13 percent and absenteeism at almost 6 percent. Both turnover and absenteeism are highest in mental health care, youth care and care for the disabled.
