Employee turnover can be expensive, disruptive, and damaging to organizational success. Despite the importance of successfully managing turnover, many retention management efforts are based on misleading or incomplete data, generic best practices that don’t translate, or managerial gut instinct at odds with research evidence. This book culminates volumes of academic research on employee turnover into a practical guide to managing retention. Turnover fictions are dispelled and replaced by research-based facts. Keys to diagnosing and managing employee turnover are presented such that you can effectively manage employee retention today. These ideas will be invaluable to you and anyone who cares about the impact of turnover on the organization, including the CEO who is looking at the impact on the bottom line, managers who suffer when their best talent leaves, and human resource professionals whose career success may depend on effectively managing turnover.
