$7,000 dollars to replace a warehouse worker.
Sound like a lot? Well, that could be the low end.
Calculating the traceable costs, the cost of warehouse worker turnover can reach 25% of salary. Using an average salary for warehouse workers of $28,000.00 (according to Salary.com), $7,000 is about where you end up. But some experts calculate the real costs, when you factor in lost productivity and other indirect impacts, at 150% of salary. Either way, turnover in the warehouse can be a major drain on profits.
