Sparck Calculator Features

Employee Turnover Calculator

If you don’t have the turnover rate for your organization, we have the formula built in to help you.  All you need are the numbers in the yellow boxes (number of employees at the beginning of the year, number of employees that left during the year, and number of employees hired during the year).

We also have the turnover formula here if you would like to see the calculation step-by-step.

Industry Turnover Averages

If you don’t have the information needed to use the Sparck Engagement Calculator, the calculator also provides standard industry turnover rates you're free to use.  

Cheat Sheet

Since there are multiple steps for some sections, like absenteeism and turnover, we have a "cheat sheet" on the Sparck Calculator to track the results you need for these more complicated equations.  The blue section to the right provides additional insight and clarification with all of the numbers used in the calculations.
