Abstract : The experiment was concerned with two perspectives of the variable of personnel turnover. In the first case, turnover was manipulated as an independent variable in an attempt to assess the relative importance of replacing group members with varying degrees of task load. It was hypothesized that the group member with the greater task load would have more opportunity for learning, and his replacement would result in the most group performance decrement. In the second case, an examination was made of mood responses and job satisfaction expressions as they varied with task load, i.e. job characteristics. The second hypothesis was that the group member with the greater task load would feel more responsible and thus express more positive moods and greater job satisfaction. (Author)
