[Excerpt] EXTMOV is a LOTUS 1-2-3 spreadsheet program specially designed to assist those managing their human resources. The program allows you to construct a simulation of your workforce that can depict the dollar-valued implications of various selection, recruitment and turnover management strategies. The relationships in the computer program are based on the external employee movement utility model described in Boudreau and Berger's Monograph, "Decision- Theoretic Utility Analysis Applied to Employee Separations and Acquisitions" (Boudreau & Berger, 1985). A case study illustrating how this program can be used to suppon managerial decisions about investments in recruitment, selection and turnover management is contained in another Center working paper #91-12 (Boudreau, 1991).
