Abstract

This project investigates certain aspects regarding the management of human resources within companies. It looks at how managers can retain a productive workforce using certain methods of retention. It also looks at the different elements of the 'worker' and how managers can use their knowledge of personalities and expectations to develop different retention strategies.
Throughout the project, there is an emphasis on communication between subordinates and management and the development of staff. The research project aims to establish a standard method of retaining the workforce that managers can benefit from.
The turn of the 21st century has brought Ireland into great economic times with the soaring of the Celtic Tiger. It has also shown us signs of global economic recession since the terrorists attack in New York on September 11th and the decline of certain industries. Looking at both sides. people remain untouched and employers seek to gain full productivity from their workers by implementing certain retention methods.
