Measure Attrition Types: Voluntary & Involuntary in addition to Total Attrition


Overview: Attrition Types

Dandi has the ability to break down attrition rates by different types (e.g. voluntary and involuntary), which offers insight into distinct categories of employee terminations. Understanding not only who is leaving but also different reasons for their departures can enable you to better target efforts to mitigate attrition risk and improve retention.


Use Cases: Attrition Types

  • Compare voluntary attrition rates -- e.g., how does attrition compare across segments when it was the employee’s decision to leave the company? Which segments of the workforce chose to leave at the highest and lowest rates?
  • Compare involuntary attrition rates -- e.g., how do attrition rates compare across segments when employment ends based on the employer’s circumstances rather than an employee’s decision to leave the organization? Which segments of the workforce were terminated by the organization at the highest and lowest rates?


How it Works: Attrition Types

  • Dandi uses employee termination dates to produce an aggregate attrition analysis.  
  • Terminated employees are typically categorized into different types; one common classification is “voluntary” vs. “involuntary.” HR practitioners & leaders can benefit from looking at these segments separately because there are generally different underlying root causes of these distinct types of attrition. 
  • As long as termination type data exists within your HR system, Dandi can use this information to process these attrition types separately and display the reports within your account.
  • Attrition Types will appear as additional categories within Explore and analyses will produce reports structured like the Attrition reports you’re accustomed to seeing in Dandi already. 


Getting Started: Attrition Types

  • Check your HRIS for “Termination type” to see if the data is available.
