These days ,very often we come across the word `ATTRITION'. This
word is being used in place of Employees turnover in an
organization, used earlier.
I was wondering whether is it the right word. If we go by the
dictionary meaning of this word it says:
" the wearing down of an adversary, making him weaker by repeatly
attacking them or wearing down of resources i.e. the process of
reducing the number of people who are employed by an organization by
not replacing people who leave the job."
I don't know what is the actual literal meaning of the word
attrition and how it has come in use in place of employees turnover.
Can somebody enlighten us on its true meaning.
