Dr. David Allen publishes a new book

Dr. David Allen, Distinguished Professor of Management has published a new book entitled, “Managing Employee Turnover: Dispelling Myths and Fostering Evidence-Based Retention Strategies.” The book is based on award-winning research and published by Business Experts Press.

Employee turnover can be expensive, disruptive, and damaging to organizational success. Despite the importance of successfully managing turnover, many retention management efforts are based on misleading or incomplete data, generic best practices that don't translate, or managerial gut instinct at odds with research evidence. This book culminates volumes of academic research on employee turnover into a practical guide to managing retention. Turnover fictions are dispelled and replaced by research-based facts. Keys to diagnosing and managing employee turnover are presented such that readers can effectively manage employee retention today. These ideas are invaluable to audiences from CEOs who care about the impact of turnover on the organization's bottom line, to the managers who suffer the most when their best talent leaves; from human resource professionals whose career success may depend on effectively managing turnover, to students mastering new knowledge and skill sets.

Dr. Allen has been studying turnover and retention for more than a decade and has published numerous turnover studies in top Management and Psychology journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Human Relations, and Human Resource Management Review. He has also translated this scholarly research into managerial and practitioner friendly guides for the SHRM Foundation and for the Academy of Management Perspectives. The book is co-authored with Dr. Phil Bryant, an Assistant Professor at Columbus State University and graduate of the Management doctoral program.
