Abstract: This paper analyses the manifestation of the current management challenge of staff turnover as an empirical phenomenon in nonprofit as compared to for-profit organisations operating within the same industry, and its relation to organisational performance. Based on an in-depth analysis of the microfinance industry, the findings indicate that staff turnover is lower in nonprofit than in for-profit organisations. Moreover, the results show a robust short- and longterm negative relationship between staff turnover and social performance but no robust association between staff turnover and financial performance. Both these effects are independent of ownership type. These results contribute to existing management knowledge on staff turnover as related to proximal rather than distal organisational outcomes, and illustrate that nonprofit as well as for-profit organisations from the same industry have the possibility to install practices oftsetting the negative consequences of staff turnover.
