Attrition is easily the villain-in-chief among the pain points that ail businesses across the world today.
While a low percentage of attrition may be a necessity and a way to infuse fresh talent, attrition rates that grow and go beyond control can create a domino effect, impacting business aspects ranging from low team morale, significant continuity breaks, challenges to strategic planning and projections, impeding productivity and even impacting the brand negatively in the long run.
HR bears the unenviable job of playing watchdog to attrition – and most contemporary HR departments spend a great deal of their time pouring over numbers to analyse the why and when and who; they spend time and man-hours seeking replacements, facilitating more than usual exit interviews. And after it all, when impeded productivity traces it's way back to attrition, HR has also got to face the inevitable responsibility of stemming the tide.
Before the pandemic, the common industry verticals that suffered from these challenges were industries like IT, startups, Retail, Manufacturing, and the like. But post-pandemic, high attrition has cut across industries and employee levels (lower levels traditionally showed higher attrition and movement). And to make matters worse, replacement hirings have become more difficult to secure

"We have about 4.5 k employees, and our attrition is close to 5% - 6% per month, especially in the large City metro cities like Delhi...We had attrition of almost 70-80% per annum earlier, which now is around 60%."
"A whole lot of manual work was happening - they manage 165 stores, so there are about 35 to 40 cluster HR to handle that. And they were doing a hell of a lot of manual work, which was not really feasible because their work is to actually motivate the workforce and keep them engaged, develop and retain them so that they contribute to the business, you know, which was not happening (before HONO implementation).
