apprentice training 2A method used to successfully predict divorce can also be used to predict whether a worker is likely to leave their job.

Reports on this method indicate that it has an accuracy rate of 80-90 per cent.

Researchers first interviewed participants and measured their attitudes. After a year, the participants attitudes were measured again and again a year after that. The study examined who had remained and who had left.

 

The study found that employees that left didn’t exhibit coping mechanisms such as balancing good and bad, didn’t genuinely accept the bad as part of life, didn’t avoid lengthy negative discussions and didn’t express hope.

Researchers found the same sort of attitudes could be attributed to people in marriages. In both marriage and work, parties establish mutually loyal and trusting relationships over time based on the exchange of resources whether it be money in work situations or love in a marriage.
