People leave their jobs for a variety of reasons. Employees with many years of service, an aging workforce, the last vestiges of pensions and/or a host of retirement options, organizational culture and the highly technical nature of the work means that there are a lot of people with a lot of knowledge that could be lost as those people leave. The consequences can include repeating mistakes and otherwise losing lessons learned coupled with new and inexperienced workers who lack the benefits of good mentors.
