The objective of this dissertation is to explore retention strategies in the hotel and computer industry industries and to ascertain whether personnel managers believe
that differences exist between male and female employees.

Questionnaires were issued to six 5 star hotels and eight computer software companies located in the greater Dublin region. These industries were chosen because of the fact that they contrast both semi-skilled and highly skilled work

After interpreting and analysing the results it was discovered that male and female work expectations differ and that no single retention strategy can be applied to
both male and female workers.
