THE RIPPLE EFFECT

Vacancies, especially excessive ones, can send a message to your customers and suppliers that your organization is weak. This creates a period of confusion; suppliers and customers simply don’t know who to contact, and the stability of the relationship can turn questionable. Even worse, the potential of errors resulting from vacancies might lead to lower sales volume, loss of customers, and loss of market share.

IMPACT ON YOUR TEAM

Vacancies don’t just affect your bottom line; they affect staff, too. Teams can experience disruption, resulting from a loss of productivity, loss of experience, loss of leadership, and even loss of skill from the employee who left. Co-workers feel frustrated and overworked, potentially increasing errors and decreasing work quality.

RECRUITING AND YOUR IMAGE

A large number of vacancies sends the wrong message to future recruits – that your organization can’t retain top talent. As a result, your company’s ability to engage and attract the best talent is negatively affected. This also sends a message to existing employees that your organization may be headed downhill. Moreover, this can send a message to your competition placing a target on your organization to recruit the remaining assets who are likely feeling the pressure of being short staffed compounding your issue.
