Frequency with which employees resign, are fired, or retire from a company, usually computed as the percentage, of an organization's employees at the beginning of a calendar year. The turnover rate is one of the factors affecting the cost of a pension plan. Employees who leave a company before they have a vested interest in the plan represent a cost saving to plan administrators, because they will not receive benefits when they retire. For this reason, most actuaries make assumptions about the turnover rate of a particular company when calculating how much money must be contributed to a retirement plan to pay future benefits.
