The study focused on the effects of the types of organizational culture on employee turnover. The current study was limited to the administrative and teaching staff of some private universities in Ghana. The study employed quantitative research design with a convenience sampling technique for the selection of 203 respondents in the study. Correlation and regression analysis were done to test the relationship between the types of organizational culture and their impact on employee turnover. The study found that Bureaucratic Culture (BC) significantly influences employee turnover (B=. 406; t-test=10.483; p<0.01). Also, the study revealed that Clan Culture (CC) significantly influences employee turnover (B=0.141; t-test=-2.362; p<0.02). Again, it was found from the study that Entrepreneurial Culture (EC) has a positive significant effect on employee turnover (B=.679; t-test=-13.154; p<0.01). Finally, the study revealed that Power Culture (PC), though, has a positive impact, does not significantly influence employee turnover (B=.0519; t-test=-1.184; p>0.05). The study recommends that the management of the organizations should strengthen formal hierarchical rules as they are significant values of bureaucratic culture that influence employee turnover.
