A study about the factors affecting the retention of managerial and specialist staff was conducted amongst the 120 highest paid employees of two banks. The response rate was 86%. The study investigated the Veldsman Employee Commitment model. The study also explored whether retention factor differences exist amongst biographical groupings. Various differences were identified between previously disadvantaged individuals (PDIs) and non-PDIs, male and female, service tenure groups and age groups.
