In data analysis frequencies, percentages, mean and correlations to show the magnitude of effect the independent variables have on the dependent variable. Study findings revealed that rewards have a positive significant relationship to employee turnover (r=0.071, p < 0.01). Findings also revealed that training positively affect employee turnover (r=0.473, p < 0.01). Also it was found out that there is a positive significant relationship between working conditions and employee turnover (r=0.189, p < 0.01) and there was a negative significant relationship between nature of work and employee turnover (r=-0.106, p<0.01).
