In 2016, the U.S. retail industry lost approximately $9 billion dollars to voluntary, entry-level turnover. Such losses are expected to climb as turnover rises across industries from health care to banking. While many companies accept high entry-level turnover as a cost of doing business, some companies are changing that reality by investing in the retention and advancement of their entry-level talent. Their investments not only improve business outcomes, but also provide new options for individuals who face barriers to economic opportunity.
