Staff Turnover: Is Lower Healthier?

Evgeny Poltanov at Synergy discusses the CRO’s staff turnover and how anyone can guarantee a completely stable team when it comes to longer-term trials. He says that during such longer-term
studies, staff will understandably expect to receive salary increases as well as bonuses, and direct labour costs will therefore increase incrementally year on year for a given project. Even if you do make all the appropriate provisions in this regard in your initial budget, you can never guarantee that your team members will still remain completely stable.
