Abstract

This research was conducted to investigate employee perceptions of the factors impacting upon employee retention and turnover in the Irish print industry.

The information was collected from staff members of an Irish multinational print company to ensure that the information was correct and reflective of current experiences. A number of different theories related to turnover and retention were studied in order to devise a series of questions devised around the literature. The main subjects covered in the questions were training opportunities, financial remuneration, regular feedback, progression opportunity and relationship with management.

Research was carried out used semi-structured interviews with 5 interviewees. The findings showed that the main subjects covered in the interview questions were major factors impacting upon staff retention, however there were also factors discovered, such as interpersonal relationships with co-workers and job flexibility that featured more heavily than had been anticipated based upon the research.
