Hi Ishita

I think that both of them are same.....

Employee Attrition rate is same as Employee Turnover Rate... That is the ratio of the number of workers that had to be replaced in a given time period to the average number of workers in the company

i want the introduction meaning definition for attriiton and also for the labour&employeerelations

Hi Pavan

Employee Relations Covers communications, employee participation in management decisions, conflict and grievance resolution, trade unions and collective bargaining.

Each of this needs to be studied in detail to understand the Labour Employee Relations

Attrition is reduction in force by means of resignations, retirements and death.

Turnover is defined as a change in the workforce due to accessions, quits, discharges, and layoffs.

The difference being that attrition is a function of a declining workforce, whereas turnover is the function of a stable or expanding workforce.

The general measure of turnover is a percentage, derived from the number of separations divided by the total number of workers on the payroll.

Ex.: 10,000 employees left a workforce of 5,000
10,000/5000 = 10/5 = 2/1 = 200%

I tried it and it worked ok. Simply click on the link then select open when the download box appears. (if that doesn’t work I’m not sure what you could try) Col

I think both of them are same

attrition is a typical number of departures in 6 months or 1 year but the meaning of the turnover is different than the attriiton but attrition means
wearing out but it relates to employees or the leaving procedure were as turnover means profit or rotation of the annual income when ever the topic is related to some reason it must be mentioned as employee turnover then only
it is equal to the attrition
