Turnover prediction of employees has become a key focus for human resource specialists, as it is broadly viewed as a vital measure of an organization’s competitive edge. To this end, a new deep variational information bottleneck network based turnover prediction method is proposed for human resource management (TP-VIB). Specifically, The information bottleneck is utilized to model the turnover prediction task, and then variational inference method is used to obtain lower bound of the IB for optimizing representation learning and pattern mining networks within the deep framework. Furthermore, a entropy regularization term is designed to balance positive and negative class imbalances in employee turnover datasets. Finally, the experiment results demonstrate that TP-VIB sets a new baseline method for employee turnover prediction tasks.
