Abstract

This paper is to identify the motivating factors contributing towards employee retention who are working in a privatized Malaysian power utility company (SESB) based in the state of Sabah as well as the neighboring Federal Territory of Labuan. A survey method was implemented. The survey questionnaire consisted of two parts, respondents' personal information that is to be obtained through Part A while in Part B, they were asked to evaluate three (identified earlier by the researcher) motivating factors in terms of human resource management (HRM) practices (person-organization fit; remuneration and recognition; training and development) on their perceived effectiveness in retaining employees. The motivating factors were compiled from the existing literature and refined through consultation with academicians who are working closely with the author as supervisor or lecturer. The findings were an ordered set of motivating factors (HRM practices) relevant to employees working in SESB based on the level of significance proven via statistical analysis. The study found out that remuneration and recognition was negligible for SESB's case and this is expected to provide useful guidelines to managers in developing further the employee retention programs or policies.
