Abstract

Among the approaches to improve employee's life quality is through the balance of the work-life that connected to the high turnover. A systematic literature review offers an overview of the present state of research concerning the turnover antecedents in the construction industry. Based on Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses, three main themes of employee turnover antecedents are identified, namely: organisation, individual, and external antecedent. Two recommendations are made, including the development of life quality strategy and to conduct more employee turnover. Identification of adverse outcomes of turnover assists in improving employees life quality in the construction industry.
