The context, meaning, and mechanisms for changing jobs varies around the world (e.g. benefit systems that make firing employees so costly that managers try to drive employees to quit in France; hukou in China where state benefits are tied to the location where one is born), and most employees do not work for firms that are U.S.-owned or based. However, the bulk of the theory and research adopts a U.S.-centric perspective. The purpose of this panel symposium is for scholars embedded in contexts around the world to describe the relevance and implications (or lack thereof) of turnover theories in their particular context.
