Abstract

Job retention was related with type of job contract, remuneration and job security, using data collected from lecturers. Correlation and regression analyses showed that while type of job contract was not a correlate, remuneration and job security positively correlated with job retention. That type of contract was not a correlate of job retention, implies that “privileges” in contracts of permanent staff which would induce staff to consider staying, were either minimal or more on paper than in practice. Either way, this situation ought to be reversed to enhance staff retention. That both remuneration and job security positively correlated with job retention, implies that both aspects of terms of service (remuneration and job security) of academic staff in the University, be enhanced to enhance staff retention.
