This study investigates the extent and effects of employee turnover on parastatal organisations in Botswana between 2010 and 2012. Using in depth face to face structured interviews, the study finds that employee turnover is low among parastatal organisations in Botswana. The study further revealed that employee turnover does have some positive and negative effects on parastatal organizations. The results also indicate that parastatal organisations have devised a raft of measures which are geared towards preventing and controlling high employer turnover.
The findings of this study have implications on strategies used by parastatal organisations to combat employee turnover. The findings could also help to develop a framework for effective and efficient strategies in combating employee turnover not only in parastatal organisations but also in private and public listed corporations.
Key words: Employee Turnover, Parastatal Organisations, State Owned Enterprises (SOEs)
