Organizations with a higher rate of labor turnover ought to heavily spend, so as to be able to get hold of, and train new employees. This factor is deemed to be expensive (McBey 2002). As indicated above, almost all bustles of business have been affected by Labor turnover. In this milieu, turnover is also having either a direct effect, or an indirect impact to the tourism sector.
