Voluntary Termination
What are the top voluntary termination reasons that employees give when resigning from your community? I am looking at overall retention strategies specifically with our CNAs. Any information you can provide will be helpful.

The top reasons for voluntary resignation include:
Returning to school to continue education
Another job with opportunity for advancement and better pay

In most cases they do not include a reason in their resignation letter. In some cases it will be re-location to another city, to accept employment elsewhere or to go back to school.

For our voluntary terminations, the # 1 reason is just a plain “resignation” of their position. The #2 is a No Call No Show, followed at #3 by “personal reasons.”

We have worked on a lot different ideas to help with CNA turnover, and other front line positions. One of the strategies we have used is to have more frequent touch points within the first year. We restructured general orientation to two parts. Day 1 they meet with Executive Director for a few minutes, at the 1 month mark they come back and meet the Executive Director again and all our department managers. This has been really beneficial to help better connect new team members and provide a more solid foundation of understanding of how our organization works with all the various positions. We also have a set calendar of checks/notes with supervisors, leadership, hr. Then at 6 months, and 1 year, new team members are invited back for a lunch to celebrate their milestone of employment and get to know them better.

There is no perfect strategy but these changes have made some improvements in our turnover. If you would like more information, please let me know.
