The article analyses the potential impact of vocational guidance to the turnover of human resources in enterprises. The rationale of this paper is a lack of theoretical research and empirical evidence on how vocational guidance and related tools can help to sustain and stabilise the extensive turnover of the workforce and its detrimental influence upon the performance of enterprises. The aim of this paper is to disclose how the methods and tools of vocational guidance can be used for the stabilisation of extensive workforce turnover. The author analyses the origins and driving forces of the extensive workforce turnover discerning its specificities in Lithuanian enterprises. Afterwards the outcomes of the empirical research into the reasons of extensive workforce turnover and the application of vocational guidance for the stabilisation of this process are also presented and analysed. The research results indicate that the main reasons of the extensive workforce turnover in Lithuania are socioeconomic, but one of the most important factors, which does not permit to overcome this problem, is the lack of trust and social dialogue between the employers and employees or their represented organisations. Another important finding of the research is that systemic and comprehensive application of vocational guidance measures in human resource management of the enterprise essentially eliminates the extensive workforce turnover by tackling its core reasons.
