LLNS Retention Data Breakdown

Does anyone have the current TCP1 and TCP2 employee retention data considering population, classification, and age?

The LLNS workforce retention data is an indicator of our employment attractiveness. If we don't have or project to have a LLNS workforce exodus, the data will show it.
If we do have or project to have a LLNS workforce exodus, being forthright about it is a fundamental early step to get in front of and address the problem.

LLNS will never recognize it; recognizing mean they failed,

Another compelling reason why "for profit" short term focused contractors running the labs was a big mistake.
No long term skin in the game, just an annual dollar harvest "while the getting is good".

Over 8 years now. I'd say that is "long term."

I agree 7 years (October 2007 transition) is a long time, but that alone does not mean LLNS is thinking and acting for the long term. Employee retention data is one indicator of long term planning performance.

Even under the best of scenarios, LLNL will have major attrition in the next handful of years from staff reaching a typical retirement age.

Sounds like an opportunity for LLNS to be forthright and proactive in this workforce challenge.

People will be leaving or retiring and the weapon labs will shrink in size and become more tightly focused on what they were designed for.... nuclear work.

Nothing wrong with that. It's a good thing that we have strong minded business managers from the LLCs who will help this vision be achieved. They've been doing a excellent job of managing the NNSA labs.

They have done an excellent job of managing the LANSLLNS exit doors for our departing lab talent, are linked to environmental accidents and milestone failures, all while successfully floating a "we cost more and we accomplish less" business model.

Llc leaders doing excellent job of leading labs...

Huh? The are the sh**ts.

The modernization of weapons designs and the complex is at a stand still, with no vision on how to proceed. The labs are not replacing essential skills being lost to downsizing and retirement. Employee purchasing power is down significantly. Budgets are stagnant. Non weapons programs are floundering, lacking sponsor commitment. Talented leaders cannot be recruited to staff senior positions. Accomplishments are minimal. The labs are no longer newsworthy, Only failures and foolishness are noteworthy. None of the organizational excellence that was earned while managed by UC exists. Yet they are doing exactly what the operating contact allow and NNSA managers want.

The labs are insignificant; this is the legacy of privatization. The strangulation by NNSA Contract 44 provisions renders lab leadership unable to actively work its way out of the malaise.

A path forward exists, but these guys and gals miss it. Mediocre.

After many decades of UC Management, LANSLLNS are setting sun organizations. When the locust can feed no more, the LLC will disassociate, move on, and not think twice about the damage left behind. Unfortunate.

UC still provides a significant backdrop to the LANS and LLNS Boards. If they agreed with you, they would already be out.

POS - you have become an ever-evolving neo-nazi. Your comments are very telling. I hope your loved ones (if any, I doubt it) are monitoring the slide of your personality into something that seems very prone to violence. I also hope Scooby can refer your IP to the authorities before it is too late.
