Employee Turnover and Absenteeism
Employee turnover rates and absenteeism create a sense of nervousness for some in the workplace, that’s what I believe that is one of this week’s main topic. When people don’t stay at a job let’s say for instance at a nursing care facility, it takes a while for a resident to become trusting of who they let care for them. They might like this new employee better than they like you. If they don’t stay, it often creates more of a nervousness for them. They often have behaviors especially those with dementia.

My choices were well received by Brain Newman in the simulation. Some of the question I had to really think about the best answers and I got a few wrong. It really made me think about making the best choices when there were several good answers. I liked being able to learn the equations to figure out turnover rates. I always had wondered how there were figured out. Also figuring out the best options to help out the company was good. It made me feel helpful to them.
What I learned from this was is you really should listen to your employees for ideas as well as your HR learning team. If your employees aren’t happy it creates a hostile environment for all, even consumers. I know one salesman in the simulations said that he could even take a few days off and still reach his quota, that was surreal to me. I know people that can’t reach their sales quota and they work 40 hours a week. But sales does some easier to some, and other have to work for what they want. But it should all be done fairly.
I believe as a class we had the same point of view on the subject. Everyone probably has a different idea on how things should be. Whether is based on experience or different types of jobs that they have done. I saw a lot of good ideas and suggestions in this week’s discussions. It’s amazing what some companies will do for their employees, and how some have no incentives and amenities. I hope to be well put together and be beneficial to whatever facility that I work at. I want to be the administrator that employees aren’t afraid to talk to. I want to take their ideas and incorporate them into action to have a better environment for everyone.
