      If turnover in certain positions does not cost the business very much, then it is a better "business model" to have each employee cost less and have higher turnover than it does to have each employee cost more and have less turnover.  

      Businesses actually measure the cost of a new employee.  (I know we do.)  In some positions, turnover costs more than in other positions.  Whether planning for a certain amount of turnover is a "poor business model" or a good business model depends on a number of things, including the costs associated with turnover.  

      In other words, it depends on the business and the position the employee holds.  Any successful business can actually calculate those things.
