DEFINITION of 'Overall Turnover'

A synonym for total revenues, commonly used in Europe and Asia. Overall turnover, in the North American context, may also refer to certain metrics, such as labor turnover or asset turnover for an organization as a whole. Overall turnover measures these metrics on a company-wide basis, as opposed to measuring them for a specific division or business unit.
