  2. 2. ATTRITIONATTRITION ""A reduction in the number of employeesA reduction in the number of employees through retirement, resignation or deaththrough retirement, resignation or death"" How many people are leaving each yearHow many people are leaving each year TurnoverTurnover = Number of staff leaving per year x 100 /= Number of staff leaving per year x 100 / average number of staffaverage number of staff
  3. 3. Attrition RateAttrition Rate • A factor, normally expressed as a percentage, reflecting the degree of losses of personnel due to various causes within a specified period of time • The rate of shrinkage of manpower in size or number. • Reduction of employees by retirement, resignation & layoff. • A term used to describe voluntary and involuntary terminations, deaths, and employee retirements that result in a reduction to the employer's physical workforce.
  4. 4. The formula and correct logic behindThe formula and correct logic behind calculation of ATTRITION RATEcalculation of ATTRITION RATE • [(No. Of attritions x 100) / (Actual Employees + New Joined)] /100.
  5. 5. ExamplesExamples 1) Actual Employees No. Of people left No. Of Joined Total Employees 150 20 25 155 So according to the formula: ((20 x 100) / (150 + 25)) / 100 Which comes to 0.1142 i.e. 11% Now as you had 150 previously and now 25 joined so it makes 150 + 25 =175 Now if you calculate 11.42% of 175 i.e. 175 x 0.1142 = 20 Which clearly shows that 175 - 20 = 155, which is your current headcount and at the same time you can say my attrition is 11.42% that shows you lost 20 employees of 150 and 25 more joined which makes count to 175.
  6. 6. ExamplesExamples 2) Actual Employees No. Of people left No. Of Joined Total Employees 100 50 0 50 • This is the special case where we are considering attritions only keeping into mind that nobody has joined in particular month. • So according to the formula: ((50 x 100) / (100)) / 100 • Which comes to 0.5 i.e. 50% • Now as you had 100 previously and now 0 joined so it makes 100 + 0 =100 • Now if you calculate 50% of 100 i.e. 100 x 0.5 = 50 • Which clearly shows that 100 - 50 = 50, which is your current headcount and at the same time you can say my attrition is 50% that shows you lost 50 employees of 100 and 0 joined which makes count to 50.

  19. 19. ConclusionConclusion • The multi-billion dollar BPO industry is racking its brains to solve the crisis, a complicated one that could prove to be disastrous in the long run. • Brand building has come up as a good panacea for the attrition problem. The Indian BPO industry is focusing on the process of brand building with a view to create respect and awareness of the job among the people. • Today, most of the BPOs are on the look out for freshers and agents with more than one-and-a-half to two years of work experience, rather than graduates with no prior experience in the industry. • The attrition rate which goes as high as 50-60% can be reduced to as low as 10-15% considering the recruitment planning model. If the present attrition rate goes on the outsourcing industry is likely to face a shortage of 262,000 professionals by 2012.
