Some state departments have trouble keeping workers

Posted:
MART -

Some Texas departments are having trouble keeping workers and it's mucking up state services.

The state auditor released its annual turnover report Wednesday. In it a couple departments stood out as having a high rate. One of those is from the Texas Juvenile Justice Department. Nearly 38 percent of correctional officers left in 2013.

The TJJD facility in Mart has a less turnover rate at 27 percent, but it's still a problem.

"From the time they leave, the position is posted, and another person is hired and they have to go through the training process as well. So that creates a shortage in the workforce, which could lead to others having to work overtime and that in itself can become a problem," TJJD spokesperson Jim Hurley said.

There are a number of reasons for the high turnover. To find out what's going on, tune in to News Channel 25 at 6.
