Contemporary research and theory on employee turnover

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Employee turnover is the voluntary termination of membership in employing institutions that is initiated by employees. Over the years, scholars have identified which employees tend to sever their employment ties, why they do so, the process by which they leave, and how they might be prevented from quitting. Though important strides toward the understanding and prediction of turnover have been made, several areas of inquiry remain unresolved or unexplored.
