This is not a good ranking if you are an employer

Tennessee ranks #12 among the 50 states and District of Columbia in how frequently people are leaving their places of employment.

This is another one of those lists that you don’t want to be on the high side if you are an employer trying to recruit and retain workers..

According to a just-released report from WalletHub, the personal financial website, Tennessee has one of the nation’s highest job resignation rates. The Volunteer State ranked #12 among the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on the methodology that WalletHub used. It considered the rate at which people quit their jobs in both the latest month and the last 12 months. WalletHub then used these metrics to rank-order the resignation rates from highest to lowest.

  • Resignation Rate (Latest Month): Double Weight (~66.67 Points); and
  • Resignation Rate (Last 12 Months): Full Weight (~33.33 Points).
