Attrition is the gradual reduction in the workforce through resignation, retirement and death.

Turnover is a change in the workforce due to quits, discharge and layoff.

The difference being that in one case the workforce is reduced while in the other it is, in the least, maintained or expanded.

Dear aryan,

According to me, turnover is the number of workers hired by an establishment to replace those who have left in a given period of time. so u can say its just an abrupt change or reversal in workforce.

whereas

attrition is the reduction in the number of employees through retirement, resignation or death". "the rate of shrinkage in size or number"

these are the text difference between the two.
