employees to resignations is one of the major causes of increase
in the overhead and training expenses of a organization, and it
is important for organizations to explore into possible ways that
they can guarantee employee loyalty. HRM is also an important
stakeholder, and much of the efforts in maintaining employee
loyalty should come from the department which understand
employee needs the most.

including the factors which motivate the employees to stay with
the organization. The study employs a quantitative approach

personal motivators, HR relations, and HR and management

Arabia, and based on the findings of the study it can be said that
the private sector organizations may like to focus on creating
conducive atmosphere, and grant maximum fulfillment and
contentment which can encourage the employees to enjoy their
job and that leads to employees’ satisfaction. This is very
important in retaining employees.
