Introduction According to Krishnaswami & Satyaprasad (2010), the selection of an issue or problem is the first step in business research. The first step in creating a problem statement is to select the discipline in which the potential problem lies (Krishnaswami & Satyaprasad, 2010). For my business research project I chose the human resource area. Second, one must narrow the focus to a specific aspect of the selected area (Krishnaswami & Satyaprasad, 2010). Employee turnover is something that I have first-hand experience with which I find to be interesting, therefore this is my area of focus. Appannaiah, Reddy & Ramanath, (2010), state that after isolating the problem area one must proceed to develop and define the actual problem statement. In this paper I will first discuss three problem statements in articles I reviewed. After which I will develop a problem statement of m own based on journal articles and studies I have read thus far concerning the issue of employee turnover in the specialization of human resource management. For the formulation of a problem Appannaiah et al. (2010), states that one needs to narrow down the focus from general to a more specific area without becoming too narrow. With this in mind I have chosen to narrow my focus to employee turnover in retail establishments.
