Human Resource Management and Organisation
A fundamental debate that managers have about employee turnover and retention concerns the extent to which the issue should be a matter of concern. While most would agree that too high a level of turnover has negative implications for an organization, there is disagreement about how significant these implications are. Staffing turnover objectives are concerned with ensuring that an organization is able to call on the services of sufficient numbers of staff to meet its objectives.
