Write Up:

When employees leave MoDOT, the department loses a large investment in recruiting, hiring and training its workforce. While some turnover is appropriate, MoDOT needs to retain an engaged workforce that has the knowledge and specialized skills to deliver the department’s commitments and provide outstanding customer service.

The overall turnover rate has decreased from 9.86% in the first three quarters of fiscal year 2019 to 9.59% in the first three quarters of FY 2020. During the first three quarters of FY 2020, resignations decreased and retirements increased. Releases increased from 47 during the first three quarters of FY 2019 to 57 during FY 2020. The FY 2020 target is to have 347 or fewer resignations. As part of MoDOT’s strategic initiatives and pay strategy, MoDOT will continue to look for opportunities to reduce the rate of employee turnover.

During the 2019-2020 winter operations season, MoDOT continues to utilize two programs to improve recruitment and retention of winter operators. The Emergency Operations Stabilization and Market Adjustment provides an hourly increase for operators performing emergency operations duties. The Winter Operations Referral Program provides current eligible employees an incentive for referring new maintenance, bridge maintenance, emergency and seasonal employees.

Purpose of the Measure:

This measure tracks the percent of employees who leave MoDOT. Turnover rates as shown in this measure include voluntary and involuntary separations.

Measurement and Data Collection:

The data is collected statewide from the SAM II Advantage HR system and includes only salaried employees. Voluntary turnover includes resignations and retirements. Involuntary turnover reflects dismissals. Data is reported quarterly, with current year-to-date data included. Stretch goal is derived from Price Waterhouse Cooper’s Saratoga Institute benchmark data.

The target for this measure was set by management directive.
