Explanation:
Hi,

My Kluwer Woordenboek Verzekeringsbedrijf gives the above as the translation for 'doorlooptijden'.

I am not sure whether the context is right though!

Good luck!

attrition rate


Explanation:
Hi Frank, I could be wrong but
could it be that perhaps in this context the average length of employment is involved?
A lot can be found on the web about attribtion rates though and I have don't have enough of your context. A lot of it is with respect to student drop-out, phrases like 'natural attrition'is used to describe 'personneelsverloop'.
