Return on Investment Calculator for Organizations
Research carried out by the UK Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) in 2004 suggests that 35% – 37% of staff leave their organizations as a direct result of "lack of development or career opportunities”. Investment in professional Certification should reduce this number. The same report provides typical annual labor turnover figures for managers and professionals, across all industries, as 12.5%.
