HR Project Plan 23 important that sales, marketing, and the company as a whole is held to their goals and financials ones are essential to meeting long term ideas. Turnover and Retention “Employee turnover refers to the number or percentage of workers who leave an organization and are replaced by new employees” (Mayhew, Smallbusiness.com, para. 1). There are two different types of turnover that Motors and More, Inc. are facing: 1. Voluntary turnover 2. Involuntary turnover By definition “Voluntary Turnover is when an employee leaves the company of her own volition and involuntary turnover is when an employee is terminated for poor job performance, absenteeism or violation of workplace policies” (Mayhew, Smallbusiness.com, para. 3-4). Human resources need to understand why Motors & More Inc. currently has higher turnover and as mentioned by McCain, “Motors and More is not experiencing involuntary turnover as the organization is expanding its workforce the community is experiencing a labor shortage” (McCain, 2007, p. 7). Turnover can be quite costly for organizations in general, between future recruiting costs, additional training costs, employee separation costs, and selection or interviewing costs companies can pay heavy fees when it comes to high turnover.

HR Project Plan 24 Human Resources might want to research the past few years of turnover as well as the monthly turnover in the current year given it has increased. What changed and why? HR then needs to implement changes according to findings. Changes can include equal pay for women vs. men, ensuring diversity is throughout the workforce in not only lower level positions but upper level as well, including different races and sex. “Motors and More, Inc. must aggressively recruit, staff and promote qualified minorities based on performance and not tenure” (McCain, 2007, p. 8).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
