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
I have written a short guide to the various definitions of employee turnover, employee attrition etc and how to calculate employee turnover.

hi ishita'

According to me
turnover is the number of workers hired by an establishment to replace those who have left in a given period of time. so u can say its just an abrupt change or reversal in workforce.
attrition is the a reduction in the number of employees through retirement, resignation or death".
"the rate of shrinkage in size or number"

these are the text difference between d two.
Attrition is the gradual reduction in the workforce through resignation, retirement and death.

Turnover is a change in the workforce due to quits, discharge and layoff.

The difference being that in one case the workforce is reduced while in the other it is, in the least, maintained or expanded.
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
hi by what i understand, attrition rate is the no of ppl leaving the company turnover rate is the def ajmal gave if im wrong pls do notify!
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%
