Abstract

Identifies some of the background costs and causes of turnovers and absenteeism in business organizations. Argues that the primary function of the manager in the control of turnover and absenteeism is observation of employee′s behaviour and performance to detect any changes representing job dissatisfaction. Stresses the need for managers to keep a close eye on employees, the importance of proper employee selection, maintaining employee satisfaction, and management and organizational commitment to employees.
