What is the attrition rate?

Hi, I´m quite new to HR and I was wondering what does the attrition rate mean? Is a high attrition rate considered bad?

Attrition rate refers to anyone that leaves your company on their own terms. This could be anything from quitting to retirement. So instead of looking at the high attrition rate, I would recommend you break it down to really see the reason why are people leaving your company. Hope this helps!
