2. Literature Review
(Kim & Jogaratnam, 2010) Proved that in the hospitality industry employee stress is one of themajor issues, one who is able to understand this caneasily achieve lower turnover rates. In these industry managers always reported stress from hourly workers rather thanany gender or marital issues,and more thenumber of employees more the undesirable health symptoms are. Interpersonal tensions have more direct linkage with the reduced job satisfaction and high turnover rates than the argument at working hours, guest stressors, or overload. Fewpeoplemay reject the intention that anthropological elements in thehospitality industry are criticalfor quality in service, customer satisfaction and loyalty towards the organization, and finally the overall performance, but this is not really true practically. Without the workforce, it is impossible for any organizationto sustain in the developing market.
Organizations which integrate work practices like total quality management and result in productivity gain have positive impact on incentive and commitment to the organizationfor which they aremore likely to experience lower employee turnover (Szczepanska & Kosiorek,2017). Thepositive involvement of employees as to working hours, feeling of satisfaction with their jobs and high level of satisfaction will probably make them remain with their present job. Having a fun time working condition or environment and flexible working hours can also be motivation to the employees. Employee retentioninvolves a mix of different activities which works well together and as a result the employee remain with the organization in the long term. Employee retention should emphasis on motivating employees, drawing in employees tojoin the organization through dedicated recruitment and making sure that theold staff with essential skills and abilities remain with the organization and focus on the fact that skills retention relies on various human resource management practices in the organization (Mannion T, Davies, & Marshall, 2003)
Employees thatare sincerely joined to their organization have been found to fulfil more, have less absences, and are more likely to leave the organization. Workers who feel upheld andesteemedby theassociation build up a connection towards the association which prompts the representative want to facilate the association's prosperity.This connection brings about a promise to stay gainful individual from an association which in turns prompts a simultaneous decrease in any point to intentionally clear out
The main resource of an organization is employees and the success or failure of organizations depends on the skill or value of the culture. For the success of the business and for the long term growth talentedemployees are tobe retained. The organization should maintain the workingenvironment so as to keep the current employees. Organization should hire good experienced and capable employees to increase the competitive market benefits. They have to be inventive and should look for the employees with knowledge, skillsand dedication and motivate them to share their ideas. When such employees remain with the organization an inventive culture will thrive (Chitra,2013).
Employee turnover frequently brings about deplete on management time, and makes pressure in workforce planning. To enhance employee retention the best way is to understand what the employees are looking for in anorganization so they can work and providing it to them. All employees’ needs and desires can be different but organizations should therefore be able to reach the limits and perform accordingly (Stanley, Vandenberghe, Vandenberg, & Bentein, 2013). The organization should make the employeesfeel that they are most valuable for the organization.
There are so many benefits such as challenging job role, training and development programmes, good package, job rotation etc connected with organizations. Having so many privileges what makes the employees leave the organization? It is essential for the seniormanagement and human resources team to understand the reasons that lead to exit of top performers. This will help them to design and implement an effective retention strategy. There arealsoother factors which make employees to quit from organization and these are poor hiring practices, managerial style, lack of recognition, lack of competitive compensation system and toxic workplace environment (Maclntosh
& Doherty, 2010).There is a lot of research concerning what motivates, engages and keeps representatives upbeat atwork and what keeps them from changing or leaving the job.
Retaining your best employees ensures customer satisfaction, increased product sales, satisfied co-worker and reporting staff, effective succession planning and deeply fixedorganizational knowledge and learning. Retaining thebest talent is always realizedby intelligent employers. Someof the strategies for retention are as follows:
Flexibility:At work being flexible is valued a lot. The managementhighly values employees who are flexible and approach there job with a flexible attitude. The willingness and ability to freely respond to changing circumstances andexpectations is known as flexibility. At some pointmanagers should be flexible and should provide hisemployees the knowledge and feedback to accomplish goals. He/she should assessthe needs ofemployees and provide guidance, feedbacks and managers who are flexible provide workers with moreopportunityabout the way they accomplish goals. They assess the needs of employees and provide feedback, guidance,and recognition individually to enhance their performance (Nadiri & Tanova,2010)
Stress free:The managersor the supervisors should make sure that the working environment of the employeesare fun so they can perform their best in terms of customer service and other relatedwork. People like to enjoy their work and therefore managers should make work and workplace joyful so the employees don’t stress out.
Financial reward:Employees who are hardworkingand has beenor stayed with the organization for the long time like for 5-6 years should be providedwith annual raises.
Recognition for work:All employees must be recognized, rewarded and appreciated whichmakes them feel happy, motivated and they getmore confident in working with the organization and its culture and environment. Also should make sure that the employees know what they are doing andhow important it is for the organization.
Assigning job responsibility:While assigning the job to the employees the managers and supervisors should communicate tohim clearly and thoroughly. The importance of the joband its details, the way it should bedone and time taken to complete the workmust me told carefully. When the employee is clearabout the role it will eventually improveher efficiency and boosthis/her morale.
Excellent career growth prospects:Encourage and groom employees to take up higher positions. If they don’t getopportunities for growth within the organization they will look elsewhere for it. There should beproper room for employees to grow.
According to Jacobs & Roodt (2008) the environment & the culture at work, the opportunities for learning & sharing had a critical connection with turnoveraims. However, the study suggest that employees tend to have low job satisfaction and have more intentions to leave because they are not happy at work and need change which cause turnover (Jacobs & Roodt, 2008).
The method for determiningemployee behaviour and which can add positively to providing organizational efficiency is known as an organizational culture (Bavik, 2016). The relationship between the organizational culture, employee performance and employee retention, given this topic not just anthropologist but many managers, professors and counsellors are very interested. In the field of organizational behaviour the importanceoforganizational culturehas received great responsiveness.
A study by Pool and Pool (2007) observed that organisations who employed people with relatedprinciples to that of theorganisation, uphold the culture of learning, develop high levels of trust within theorganisation, and reduce the structural and interpersonal obstructionsamongst colleagues,promoting organisational commitment. Also the study suggest that tangible effects of organization’s culture on job satisfaction, commitment and motivation are all important to an organization achieving success (Pool & & Pool, 2007).
(Selden & Sowa, 2011) concluded that strong measures shouldbe taken to retain the employees with high potential who really performing very well and spending their good time in favor of the organization, which can only be knownefficiently by the just upper boss of theemployee who known how he/she is working, how much timehe is taking to complete the tasks given or maintain good relation with the team mates. The assigned task should be according to their specialization and interests, it’s the job of the team leader to seeall the capacity of thepersonandthen decide what he can do best. Even when the employs found thathe is provided withmoreor different tasks from teammates, they may find it burdened sometimes or partiality by the leader with him, sohemust distribute the work equally between the team. The rules for everyone should also be same whichavoids favoringofan individual by the authorities.
Corporate culture in hospitalityorganization in hotels for instancehighly depends on the management’s initiatives. When Four Points by Sheraton Darling Harbour made a transition to Hyatt Regency Sydney most departmental managers and directors remained same and despite thenew organizational missionand vision statements corporate culture within the property remained unchanged (Moncarz, Zhao, & Kay,
2.1 Positive Impacts of Organizational culture
1. Orientation:Thedecision made by the organization influencesthe employees both negatively and positively. If management takes the decision not favouring the employees it willhave negative impact on them. And if management takes the decision in the favour of the organizationas well as of theemployees it will impact positively onboth.
In this factor employees are encouraged to be innovative and to take risks. When the culture of the organization is advancedand challenging the employees get more engaged towards their work. There is this saying that more risk more profit. So organization taking risks are more profitable and successful. Theemployees are trainedaccording to the culture of theorganization. Employees tend to work with the organization when organization are successful and have benefits for the employees to work and get opportunities to go higher. The primary concentration of organizations are towards their objective which is product development and innovation. Organizations produce new product development and employees work support that objective. This puts a decent influence on employee’s behaviour and they are qualified by inventiveness in the market.
In organizations, where there is promotions andother opportunities given to employees to motivate at some extend employeesare tend to be aggressive and competitive than co-operative. Employees competewith each other for the opportunity and which doesn’t make any unity at work to achieve the company’s mission.
4. Team Work
A team is form to all works and toperform the work of the organization as through the team theobjectives can be accomplished effectively rather than performing individually.
5. Attention to detail
The stage to which employees are expected to beattention to detail, show accuracyand exploration. Every employeeshave different culture, identity, characteristics as indicated by its own particular esteems which aregiven. The employees have to work according to the culture created by the organization which enhancepositive influence of employeeandorganizational culture. It gives detail about culture and then measures the entire association which gives positiveoutcomes.
6. Job satisfaction
Based on observed data and indication of employees in US recommend that job satisfaction tends to relate completely with employee productivity and negatively with work turnover which both influence strong execution (Linz,
2003). It is a very important topicon the organizational behaviour and organizational management. Different researchers and studieshave variety of definition and inter-related theories which are considered from the beginning of the 20thcentury. Job satisfaction is categorise on the basis of individual’s need. It is characterized as the aggregate of person's position towards different occupation related components including work itself, management, associates, working conditions, salary and reward and acknowledgment. For the progress of an organization and to make their culture strong, employees who are satisfied tend tobe withtheorganization for the long term (Sharma , 2017).
Job satisfaction affects negatively on employee retention. Organizational culture influences on employee’s retention. When the culture remains positive employees tend to be seen working with the organization in the long term whereas if the culture is negative there is high number of people leaving the job. Tomake theemployees look after the organization and follow its culture to be recognize in the market for its service and getting good results the employees are to be looked after and well treated by providing rewards andopportunities by theorganization . One example wouldbe, through my experience at HyattRegency, we don’t have many facilities comparing to other hotels in Sydney. In terms of facilities, for example we don’t have swimming poolsand sauna which is also effecting in terms of business as it isnot appealing for the Western Europe tourists as they prefer hotels with cold swimming pool and sauna. Coming back to facilities with limited facilities I have seen many people leaving the job and whenasked some said they got better job, while others said that they don’t see going further high.
2.2 Measuring Organizational Culture
The concept of culture now has become really challenging for which researchers have beentaking many different methods to measure it.
3. Research Aim
The aim of this research was to findout howorganizational cultures are impacting in employee retentionand whyorganizations are facing employee turnover. Different organizations are applyingmany procedures andpolicies to retain their staff. Organizations are focusing more towards the retainment of employees and maintaining the quality to satisfy the customers. Employees now a days are looking for different opportunities where they can see themselves growing. loyal employee for an organization are those who stayed for a long time because he enjoys all the benefits which resulted in more attachment with theorganization and these people always tends to favor the management rather speaking badmouth againstthem. Moreover to this whenever a new employee joins the company it definitely needs some time to adjust whicheventually slows theoutput process.
In the techniques of retention motivation always plays a major role which acts as a catalyst in the success of any individual. This is the best technique also for extracting the best out of them, sending of motivational emails; posters inside the organization, organizing some activities that improve the productivityby sometimes keeping the professional tasks aside can help a lot. It is the natural tendency of human beings that they feel low sometimes which can be avoided with the help of motivation by the management. Motivation can also be done through some hike in salary, incentives when they perform outstandingly, cash prizes and trophies in competitions. Whereas appraisal is alsonecessary when an employee is attached to the organization from a long timeandperforming well in the directionof their career growth, without giving all such benefits it is wrong to expect best from the employees (Ahammad,Tarba, & Glaister, 2016)
It is the procedure of truth with the help of observation, study, experiment, and comparison. The process of Research methodology contains many activities to be performed. These activities are settled in the proper sequence of time for completing the research.This research report is about qualitativemethod and theanalysis of its methods. This research is also described primary and secondarydata collection, ethical considerationof these data collection, and limitations in this research report.
3.1 Data Collection Methods
The research design is a case study type. Information and facts used both are primary and secondary. Generally, researchers take the time and divide the resources required to collect the primary data when an issue, question, and problem introduce itself sufficiently important. Thesedata are unique and original and related directly to the problem or issue. It is collected through differentmethods like surveys, interviews, questionnaires etc. Secondary data are is also important to get starting insight into the research project. Secondary data canbe classified according to its source- internal or external.
All the information was brought through questionnaireand interview method is analysed. Approaches of analysis is qualitative type. Qualitative and Quantitative
research both are considered differently & fundamentally.Their applications, as well as their objectives,are different in numerous ways.
Quantitative research includes data, figures, graphs etc. It describes theactual measurementofdifferent views and opinions. On the other hand, qualitative research method is suitable for obtaining a depthunderstanding of a particular subject. Except this, this regularly generateshypothesesand ideas for the quantitative research. It includes literature review, article, and report etc. the main difference between these two methods regarding data collection, data sample, data analysisand also the difference reflects inoutcomes (Terrell, 2012).
3.2 Sampling Procedures
Forobtaining the purpose of the research, depth interviews are used to know participant’s feelings, emotions, and opinion related to a specific research project. In this research,only one individual was taken for the interview. We scheduled an appointment and also the individual was told that the given information through him will be kept confidential and secured. Based on my research it is non-probability as for the data and informationwe are taking interview of only one person. For which cannot be very true as also it depend on people’s own way of thinking and giving opinion and also have different experiences. Since the information collected through the interviewee is from one person it cannot be very relevant as some questionnaire was basedon theorganization (Ofei, et al., 2015).
3.3 Data Analysis Technique
Data and information obtained from the interviewee have been thoroughly reviewed to avoid the problems and ambiguities. Only relevant informationare provided in the report to be more specificand consisted with objectives of the study. In this study we have open-ended questionnaire as the answer of the open-ended questionnaire are given with more thoughts and are not single word answer.
3.4 Ethical Considerations
Taking interview creates opportunity to feel live reality of the concerned sector through the individual’s emotions, behaviourand attitude. Though it was not an easy task. Ethical codes will be used by the Researcher during the interview. All the data is gathered from authorized sources. Next, participantsare informedformerly regarding the aim of the research project. They also ensure that theiranswers will be kept confidential and used only for the aim of the specific research. Except this, participants of the research were not abused or harmed both psychologically and physically during the research. Besides this, the researcher tries to createan atmosphere of comfort (Rahi, 2017).
The researcher will be making sure that the interviewee is comfortable to start with. To get required information the researcherneeds to create a favourable situation, mood of spot and respondentby researcher attitude and efficiency. The researcher will be also recording the interview for future reference as it can be used to listen back the information to get the better outcomes. The interviewee is the Assistant Manager of XYZ hotel. The name of the organizationwill remain confidential as agreedwith the interviewee as it may cause bad reputation of the organization in the market which can affect in their business.
3.5 Research Limitations
The study is focusedon the culture of the organization and its impact on employee retention. The analysis depends on available information from primary source using structured interview with a single individual. The limitations to the above study are:
1.The study focuses on the employee’s retention through organizational culture and behaviour.
2.The interview was schedule according to the interviewee.
3.The size of the participant is relatively small- only one participant. A bigger sample ofparticipants wouldpossibly increasethe liability of theproject.
1.The qualitative method of research does not permit the measurement of the problems regarding research.
2.Insufficiency of secondary data from recordsof the companies.
3.Cost, time, and location elements become prime difficulties to complete the research.

It is important to note that responses that were collected referred to proper growth opportunities within the organisational mix. The manager emphasised upon better growth of the staff members and employees will result in retention of their key skills and performances.
