Pay them on time, market wages or slightly better
The worker must feel a sense of belongingness and bonding.
Many Japanese workers work long hours and stay with one company for long.
Management must be proactive,mixing around with workers show that they are one team,

If you wish to control the employee attrition, then you need to first do the analysis of the attrition. Have you done that? You may check my following posts, wherein I have given exhaustive list through which you can do the attrition analysis:
Any action plan can be developed, once you understand your numbers well.
Lastly, about making your post anonymous. You want advice from seniors but wanted to protect your identity! Why? Your post does not merit maintaining anonymity.

You certainly need to do attrition analysis and fix the reasons.
Whatever are the findings of your analysis, generally following reasons are prominently seen why people leave the organisation:
* Low rate of wages
* uncaring and ruthless boss
* Bad working conditions ie lack of ventilation, sitting place, toilets , tools , lunch room, unsafe workplace
* No appreciation for work
* Long distance to workplace from home and long travel time.
* Inadequate leave and holidays.
You have to find out which reason is causing maximum attrition and
select it for action plan. .
Remember, there is no one fit all solution to this and you have to think what will work best for your company after your analysis and getting tried and tested ideas from elsewhere.

People stay with the organization for long when they are humanely treated, accosted as associates and not workers, flexi-timings are available, and the HR shows concern for the staff and his/her family even outside of the working hours.Depending on the nature of the job - they are provided regular training (as and when needed) and if they are desirous to improve in academics, admission is arranged for in an Institute of Higher Education.
Loyalty and concern (from the employer) breeds loyalty and concern (in the ranks and files) .
Hope these lines help.

I will keep it simple. I assume your organization gives proper remuneration and on time. I assume the work environment is clean and has basic facilities. My 2 cents on what could be wrong:
1. Employees are not being appreciated.
2. Employees are not given work according to their innate strengths.
3. Some bullies are there - seniors who are feeling threatened.
4. Employees are not being told what is expected of them - or they are not being heard.
identification of an employees strengths thru isometric tests - many different types are available in the market - will help in a happier work force - if they can contribute and see the results of their contribution, they WILL Stay.
Take a tough, hard look in the mirror. All the best.
