Employee turnover and operational performance: the moderating effect of group-oriented organisational culture
Mohr DC, Young GJ, Burgess JF. Employee turnover and operational performance: the moderating effect of group-oriented organisational culture. Human Resource Management Journal. 2012 Apr 1; 22(2):216-233.
This study investigates the relationship between overall employee turnover and operational performance and whether organisational culture is a moderator. Using a sample of 114 outpatient centres from a health-care system, we found a strong negative relationship between employee turnover and operational performance. Additionally, we found that organisations with a relatively stronger group-oriented organisational culture did not experience lower operational performance in the presence of high turnover. These findings contribute to the literature on the relationship between turnover and performance. Organisations with persistent high levels of turnover may want to consider developing and adopting practices that are consistent with a group-oriented organisational culture
