To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of (1) rates of staff turnover at HS2 Limited, and (2) the impact of staff changes on the efficient running of that company; and what they assess to be the causes of those rates of turnover.

HS2 Ltd’s staff turnover rate for the financial year 2017/18 to date (01 April to 30 November 17) is 16.9%.

HS2 Ltd assess workforce impact changes and has a clear strategy outlined in its Corporate Plan to manage any impacts of staff turnover. Key factors in HS2 Ltd’s turnover have been the relocation of their headquarters from London to Birmingham, a company wider reorganisation and restructure, changes in skill set requirements as the project transitions in to a build mode, and natural attrition expected in a programme environment. When involuntary turnover is removed from calculations, the turnover rate is comparable with other industry organisations.
