Abstract: In today's market, organisations must understand their employees better. It is important to evolve when it comes to people, especially because it is the people who make the organisation. This study aims to increase knowledge about employee willingness to stay in organisations.

Findings reveal that organisational commitment has a significant and positive effect on employee retention. However, the influence of personal and professional life balance on and organisational environment on employee retention was not supported.
