GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Express Employment in Grand Junction says Colorado has the highest quit rate in the country. Here in Mesa County it’s adding to the difficulty of finding qualified workers.

The company commissioned a new survey regarding the quit rate. They found 42% of U.S. companies say employee turnover has increased this year and there isn’t a single industry who isn’t looking to hire. Beyond the financial impact of employee turnover, companies agree this challenge places a heavy burden on existing employees. Among those who have experienced an increase in turnover, the most common reasons are more advancement opportunities elsewhere and better pay or benefits offered elsewhere.

To combat this issue, Express Employment says companies need to consider becoming an employer of choice in their communities by offering competitive salaries and benefits along with flexible work/life balances.
