TAT to add resources in the team
Hiring Turnaround time 6-8 weeks
New Hire Training time 4 weeks
Notice Period 4 weeks Maximum 8 weeks

A higher-than-average attrition rate or turnover rate (Refer to the data set for one of the teams)
2. The notice period is 4 weeks in most cases, could also go up to 8 weeks in some special scenarios
3. The hiring timeline is 6-8 weeks at best
4. The onboarding process (which includes training etc) is another 4 weeks

All this is leading to queue health metrics going in red and people burndown due to constant OT garnering
Based on this information:
1. What is your take on this situation, is there an issue or a gap? If yes, what and why? If not, why?
2. Do a deep dive on data and come up with a plan to manage attrition through continuous planned hiring to
benefit all parties involved?
