As organizations continue to become global, one of the key organizational challenges of the 21st century is retaining talented employees who can become future leaders and continue the vision of the organization. The leaders of the 21st century are faced with many challenges to understand the multicultural environment and deal with a diverse workforce that is virtual and collocated and develop strategies specific to the cultural needs of the workforce. The purpose of this study is to evaluate employee attrition rate when the leader is collocated or virtual. A quantitative research methodology is used and the Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS) was the primary instrument used to collect data. The participants were asked to provide demographic data and a convenient sample was used for this research. After gathering the data, SPSS statistical software program and Microsoft Excel were used to analyze the data and draw inferences while ensuring confidentiality of data. The research result will determine employee attrition rate when the leader is collocated or virtual. The results, conclusions, implications, and recommendations for further study will close this research.
