with evidence-based strategies. Academy of Management Perspectives, 24, 48-64.
An article by Professor of Management David G. Allen and two graduates of the Management
doctoral program (Phil Bryant and James Vardaman, currently Assistant Professors at
Columbus State University and Mississippi State University, respectively) has been
awarded the 2010 Best Paper Award by the Academy of Management Perspectives. In the
article, the authors identify the key managerial implications of decades of research
on employee turnover. Based in part on research funded by the SHRM Foundation, the
article also takes an evidence-based approach to dispelling misconceptions about turnover
and developing retention strategies.
Dr. Allen's research focuses on the flow of human capital into and out of organizations,
