Keywords:Human resource management, faculty retention, private university, influencing factors
AbstractHuman resources and personnel management is one of the burning issues today. Employee retention is thus being considered as one of the core challenges faced by many organisations especially in the private sector of the economy. In this research, a conceptual model was developed and applied in the context of the faculty retention policy of a private university in Bangladesh. The study was conducted in 2008 by collecting 54 data which were employed primarily to evaluate the current human capital retention practices of the university from the facultiesâ€™ point of view. The research identified the core elements of human resource practices, which strongly influence the decision of faculty members to remain in the organisation. Several statistical analytical techniques such as Factor Analysis, Multiple Regression Analysis, ANOVA, and correlation analyses have been used to measure the level of incentives of the faculties rendered by the concerned university. The result showed that university culture and policies, work environment, teamwork relationship, and challenging opportunities are significantly related with the faculty retention policies practised by the university.
