Utilizing fit theory in strategic human resource management, this study examines the impact of two HR practices on newcomer turnover rates. While there is a growing body of research identifying the linkage between high-performance work systems(HPWS) and improved organizational performance through higer employee commitment, little research addresses how specific mechanisms among the systems deliver different performances to organizations. Using management by objective(MBO) and job rotation in HPWS, we found a strong main effect of each practice-it decreases newcomer turnover rates. This main effect becomes stronger when one practice combined with another, showing synergy exists. Linking HPWS research to turnover, this study provides insightful evidence of interactions between MBO and job rotation for organizational performance.
