The ABC University has experienced problems both with its recruitment and selection, aswell as retention. The delay in the selection process has often lead to high employee turnover,as some staff feel that they are overloaded and not rewarded accordingly. One cause of highstaff turnover is that the university fails to offer competitive salaries. A good salary serves asan incentive for the employee to staff in the institution. To attract and retain employees, it isrecommended that the university adjusts its salary grids and improve its non – financial benefits, such as pension plan, spousal job opportunities. It is also recommended thatacademic incentives be provided so as to retain employees. Finally, ABC should not offer merit pay as a financial incentive, as it destroys the morale of the staff. The paper concludesthat ABC University needs to have strategies to use in order to attract, select and retainemployees.
