The study attempts to explain the challenges faced by an academic organization in retaining its employees. It is thus a comparative study of retention of the faculty between the government and the private educational sector. It has been seen that most young graduates prefer working for the corporate sector because of its attractive growth opportunities. In such a scenario recruiting and retaining talent is a challenge for every academic organization in the country. Organizations need to focus on increasing employee satisfaction because qualified employees are becoming scarcer and they are difficult to retain. Organizations must value their employees and treat them as assets. The blooming private sector stands by far as the major job providing sector compared to Government sector. With the advent of internet and social networking sites people have access to loads of relevant and real time information, hence, attrition. The research study aims at studying different perspectives of teachers working in the private and the government Institutes or universities of Uttarakhand, that prompt them towards retention and attrition, by throwing light on various factors.

Abstract


The study attempts to explain the challenges faced by an academic organization in retaining its employees. It is thus a comparative study of retention of the faculty between the government and the private educational sector. It has been seen that most young graduates prefer working for the corporate sector because of its attractive growth opportunities. In such a scenario recruiting and retaining talent is a challenge for every academic organization in the country. Organizations need to focus on increasing employee satisfaction because qualified employees are becoming scarcer and they are difficult to retain. Organizations must value their employees and treat them as assets. The blooming private sector stands by far as the major job providing sector compared to Government sector. With the advent of internet and social networking sites people have access to loads of relevant and real time information, hence, attrition. The research study aims at studying different perspectives of teachers working in the private and the government Institutes or universities of Uttarakhand, that prompt them towards retention and attrition, by throwing light on various factors.
