From the Paper:

"Our organization has suffered drastically with high employee turnover in the past year. We have struggled to ensure that each store is fully staffed due to our high employee turnover rate. If we continue to have high employee turnover, our organizations productivity and profitability will continue to decline. Even our customers are becoming dissatisfied with our services due to our high turnover rate and the lack of knowledge in new employees. Each time we lose an employee our quality of service goes down."
