Abstract

Employees’ retention means to question why our employee leaves company or organization. Gaining employee retention is very necessary to motivate them to work more efficiently. This article aimed to study the executive’s opinion on attributes of employee retention; to identify the factors that impact employee engagement level and work life balance; to evaluate the rates of employee retention among different departments; to discover whether the working condition and job satisfaction leads to employee retention; and to explore the influence of the following determinants on employee retention, (such as, Career opportunities, Reward, Supervisor support, Work environment and Work life balance). The study found a positive but weak relationship among job satisfaction and working environment, gender, age group, rewards and recognition, growth and development opportunities, and health and related benefits.
