Abstract : The research contribution develops a model which can be used to estimate changes in labor turnover costs that will result from changes in a host of behavioral and other parameters: any voluntary re-enlistment rate (first term, second term); any involuntary loss rate (during the first year, second); lengths of boot camp and 'A' school training; pupil-teacher ratios in boot camp and in 'A' schools; duration of on-the-job- training, etc. An important limitation of the model is its 'steady-state' character. Time paths of turnover costs between 'steady-states' are discussed. (Author)
