Four general types of research questions that may be pursued by using ABM are distinguished in [49]. Firstly, the aim might be to describe the characteristics of the modelled system and analyse the relationships between them. Secondly, the model might be built as a prediction tool. Thirdly, the modeller might aim at testing hypotheses about causal relationships, in which case the hypotheses are translated into model assumptions, which are then checked against empirically observable behaviour of the modelled system.

External factors also play a role in the voluntary turnover process. As one would expect, the intention to quit shows up faster and materialises into actually quitting the organisation with a higher chance if the unemployment rate is lower [4] and there 11 Co-workers’ job embeddedness acts in the same direction [107]. 12 A similar result is reported in [66], where internal and external network sizes were used instead. 13 Some studies point at a U-shaped effect from the number of children [4, 237] and age [235, 246].

431] A system consisting of a network of interacting adaptive agents that exhibits a dynamic aggregate behaviour that emerges from the individual activities of the agents but that can be described without a detailed knowledge of the behaviour of the individual agents; agents are adaptive in the sense that their actions in the environment can be assigned a value that, due to agents’ behaviour, increases over time [140] An open system with “multiple components, which interact with the environment,” connected into “self-organising networks,” through which both the components influence the system and the system influences each component, that is characterised by co-evolution and adaptation and generates emergent behaviours [101, p.
