Abstract
The goal of this paper is to outline the issue of organizational voluntary turnover in today's society as not only a financial problem but also an overarching issue that impacts departments across the entire organization. The most effective way to solve this problem is to cultivate a core set of values and beliefs that the organization will truly entrench into its practices and habits. Once this is accomplished, an organization can conduct a unique interview process that carefully and intentionally selects employees based on values congruence person-organization fit, which studies show will result in higher job satisfaction and organizational commitment, leading to increased retention.
