Key Findings • Organizations using high-involvement work practices have lower rates of quits, dismissals, and total turnover, which in turn leads to higher rates of customer satisfaction. • Long-term investments in employees—such as the use of internal promotions , high relative pay, pensions, and full-time employment—lead to lower rates of quits, dismissals, and total turnover. • HR practices that emphasize short-term performance such as intensive performance monitoring and commission-based pay—lead to higher rates of quits, dismissals, and total turnover.
