The objective of this article is to determine the factors involved in the turnover of frontline employees who work for a facilities services company. This article analyzes the level of importance of the factors that employees indicated to leave the company based on AHP methodology. The sample consists of 158 employees interviewed during their last day at the company.

We can also identify the main differences between males who indicate dissatisfaction with training as the main reason, while females indicate the work environment at the first level.
