Abstract

A pilot study conducted among 62 hotel human resources managers (HRM) in Central Florida was undertaken for the purpose of investigating the magnitude and underlying causes of absenteeism and voluntary turnover. The results indicated that a large proportion of the HRMs would not, or could not compute the magnitude of their absenteeism and voluntary turnover rates in their properties. In the opinions of these HRMs, the factors that affect employee absenteeism were mostly work-related rather than demographic. On the other hand the factors that affect employee voluntary turnover according to the survey's respondents were a combination of work-related and personal characteristics.
