Worker turnover is a serious problem in many industries. We chose to focus our attention on the financial industry, more specifically on the Royal Bank. In our report we will address this problem analyzing data we collected from surveys, interviews and observations made at three different Royal Bank branches in the west island. From the data, we found several possible alternatives could be implemented to reduce the amount of turnover and increase morale. They are:.
• Flexible work arrangements.
• Self managed work groups.
• Employee advancement programs.
• Improved benefits & rewards.
Each of these will be addressed and analyzed to determine the feasibility and possible drawbacks of implementation.
