The most common phrase we hear for the staff circulation or labour cycle, and I think that is because it is more charming as it is not a Turkish phrase, is “turnover rate”. Turnover is a bad thing.

It is not necessary to give the reasons for termination at the time of termination. A short statement face Okumaya devam et
