employee turnover is detrimental to many organisations. Just the costs of finding a suitable replacement (recruitment, interviews, administration, etc.) often exceed a full year's salary. This is especially true when the original employee had scarce and non-transferable knowledge, competences, etc. In short: Understanding reasons for departure is important for almost all organizations.
Does age really influence staff turnover? What makes age different? To begin with, age does not affect the overall experience of the departing employee. There is clearly no significant link between life experience and the departure of an employee to observe.
