In view of the employees being considered as one of the most important stakeholders in the entire business system and based on the management‟s inclination to retain deserving employees, the paper aims to identify factors that affect employees staying intentions in private banks. The descriptive research has been carried out on 400 employees drawn from private banks of two different districts namely Anand and Kheda in the state of Gujarat with the help of a structured questionnaire. The variables studied include organizational commitment, environment perceptions, attitude of co-workers and job satisfaction on staying intentions of employees. The findings suggest that there are mainly three factors which affect staying intentions. They are organizational commitment, environment perceptions, and attitude of co-workers. However, job satisfaction is the factors that create the mediating effect on the dependent variable. The research contributes to the extent that private banking organizations should concentrate on such variables for retaining employees more so in fiercely competitive scenario.

Abstract


In view of the employees being considered as one of the most important stakeholders in the entire business system and based on the management‟s inclination to retain deserving employees, the paper aims to identify factors that affect employees staying intentions in private banks. The descriptive research has been carried out on 400 employees drawn from private banks of two different districts namely Anand and Kheda in the state of Gujarat with the help of a structured questionnaire. The variables studied include organizational commitment, environment perceptions, attitude of co-workers and job satisfaction on staying intentions of employees. The findings suggest that there are mainly three factors which affect staying intentions. They are organizational commitment, environment perceptions, and attitude of co-workers. However, job satisfaction is the factors that create the mediating effect on the dependent variable. The research contributes to the extent that private banking organizations should concentrate on such variables for retaining employees more so in fiercely competitive scenario.
