High staff turnover can cost a business significant-high sums as we all scramble to keep and recruit new talent. High turnover can also fuel staff disgruntlement and lower morale.

When asked this common question recently, working within the Recruitment and HR world it is now more than ever important to listen to your employees, and understand perks and benefits, I truly believe this is the key for staff staying within their roles longer and not only this feeling appreciated!

According to a recent survey behind salary were benefits and perks of why someone would choose a company, some rated this behind salary and promotional opportunities!
