The study seeks to find out the relationship between employee participation and labour turn over in child care kitgum servants an NGO (formerly started as childcare international) At child care organization emphasis has been put on reducing labour turn over but the organization has failed to perform to its expectations. The lack of employee participation at child care has resulted in to poor relation ships among employees, and employers and this has resulted to dissatisfaction at work where by most employees feel alienated and of no value to the organization which has greatly contributed to labour turn over. The major objectives of the study are to find out employee participation in decision making and how it can impact on labour turn over. The study is mainly the literature review based on published materials like journals and reports of different scholars, text books and the online sources from the internet. It is also based on the findings from the employees at child care whom we interviewed and extracted information from them. The study is carried out at child care kitgum servants located in kitgum district and has residential offices in Kampala -Rubaga Mubanda road, and branches in Australia. Findings revealed that employee participation reduces labour turn over since participative management approach is viewed as management that has concern for its people. As a result of employee participation, employees feel empowered and part of the organization .it is this sense of belonging that motivates employees which reduces labour turn over. Through employee participation employees are capable of amng out their grievances and dissatisfaction to the employers so as corrective measures can be taken to maintain the employees thus reducing labour turn over. The recommendation put forward to ensure that employee participation becomes successful like formation of committees by employees or representatives in charge of representing their view to management. Management should treat their employees as part of the organizations assets and not just liabilities because without the human capital the organization would find it hard to operate.
