Recruiting a new employee is costlier than retaining the existing ones. The best organizations focus on retaining and getting the best out of every employee. The real objective of any company is to retain only those people who contribute to the companys performance in terms of improving the quality of goods and services, or increasing the level of customer


satisfaction. Retaining their best employees requires companies to launch initiatives along several dimensions: introducing good house- keeping practices in offices and shop-floors; making performance-appraisal systems, transparent, objective; and participative;

professionalizing the senior management team; and ensuring that employees take pride in their work. Attrition is a controllable problem, if necessary steps are taken at the right time. Employees are the important assets of a company. If the attrition level increases than retention level, it will result in low production and increases the cost of production. So, the company should take necessary steps to provide better welfare measures and benefits to their employees and make the work environment a pleasant place to work and thereby retain their existing employees.
