This allows Compass to extract and develop superior processes.

Let's explore some of the challenges that managers face today.
Just as we did with the Benefits section, let's look more specifically at the issue of employee retention and turnover. Activities such as RFPs and Consultant Database Population can be redundant and stressful due to tight deadlines and sales/management pressure. Because of this, there can be a certain level of employee turnover that impacts these functions. At large investment firms, it is not unusual to see turnover as high as 20% annually in these positions. At smaller firms where staffing is limited, the loss of one person could be devastating to new business prospecting. Since Compass is an employee owned business, turnover is less of an issue so we can focus on higher priority initiatives.
