Six-week average recruitment gap

24 Jul, 2008

New research has found that on average, there is a 30 day gap between an employee leaving an organisation and their replacement starting. The recent report questioned 700 employers and discovered that the problem is worse with skilled managers, who typically take almost seven weeks to replace. In some workplaces this has an impact on other members of staff: one in five respondents said staff worked longer hours in the interim period, while 36 per cent reported increased workloads before a replacement was found. Overall, the survey revealed that that the average length of employment tenure in Britain is 5.6 years.
