Abstract

This report is conducted on the effectiveness of non-monetary retention tools in retaining employees at the beginning of an upturn. The report, conducted in the accountancy sector, found that salary was the most important tool, but that other retention tools are necessary to be used also to ensure retention. A survey was distributed to 176 employees in an accountancy firm at two locations; Dublin and Longford, a total of 88 employees responded resulting in a 50% response rate. The researcher analysed the data both quantitatively and qualitatively through responses from both open-ended and closed questions. A through investigation into past and current literature on the topic was reviewed. A 12- factor model was identified that was utilised as a theoretical framework by the researcher throughout the research. The results of the survey indicated a desire for flexible working practices and implementation of a work-life balance programme. Recommendations are given to the organisation in question on how to address their retention policy. The report concludes with a personal learning statement.
