The Number of Years The Average Employee Spends At A Job

Average Employee

Did You Know….

The average number of years an employee spends at a given job isn’t any shorter than it was 20 years ago. In fact, average tenure has increased from 4.0 years in 1996 to 4.2 years in 2016 (after a drop from 4.6 in 2014). Those with higher levels of education have longer stays on average, as do managers and employees in professional roles. Workers in the service industry, who are generally younger, have an average tenure of 2.9 years. Within that industry, food service workers have the lowest average, at 1.9 years per employer.
