Abstract

The overall purpose of this research report is to determine what are the key enablers in the retention of top talented retail managers. The research focused on the work expectations of Generation Y employees. Literature in this area showed a lack of insights into the work motivations of Generations Y retail managers and within an Irish context.

The study adopted a quantitative approach. A questionnaire survey was issued to the total research population to gain a fuller understanding of the work motivations. The questionnaire was based on Herzberg’s motivational theory.

It was found that management failing to lead is the main contributor to influence employees’ decision to resign. This finding supported the literature argued by various authors. Within an Irish context, career advancement is the key motivator for Generation Y retail managers.
