Trick question! When people leave my agency they don’t get replaced. Turnover is just another word for “Do more with less”
My agency, when it is allowed to fill slots back up, doesn’t actually get to interview anyone. Instead, a central management agency will do a test then a standardized interview. The manager will have no idea who they get and no say in whether or not they’ll be a good fit or not.
If you have a model like that, then turnover is always always always a bad thing.
