Hi As per my knowledge both the terminologies can be used interchangeably depending on the type of industry one may refer to i.e factory or office. Regards Khushnum

Khushnum has stolen my thunder ("both the terminologies can be used interchangeably").
From my perspective, the design engineer takes a concept (his/hers or others) and brings it to fruition by application of his mental abilities without any physical exertion.
The factory worker, on the other hand, has to take that concept and make a product using both his/her mental capacities as well as physical capabilities. Problems encountered in the production process require the workers to resolve them.
It is inefficient to have an engineer "stand by" to address potential problems.

Actually Labour turnover is related to Blue Collar workers while employee attrition is related with white collar worker :wink:

many of the resources found referred to attrition and employee turnover as the same issue. In addition, most resources that referred to attrition and turnover, also talked about recruitment and retention. Attrition is the reduction of numbers through resignation, retirement or death while turnover referred to as the number of employees hired within to replace those that have left. In addition, refers to retention as being the act of retaining or the act of retaining or the power to retain. While on the surface attrition seems like a negative problem.
