The purpose of this research was to explore the factors that cause some employees to remain with an employer for an extended time in the hospitality industry – an industry widely recognised as being characterised by high staff turnover. The study takes a different approach to most of the related research undertaken in this industry by focusing on the factors that contribute to retention. Content analysis of in-depth interviews indicates that community attachment, a dimension not generally explored in turnover research, may play a significant role in explaining employee’s intention to stay with an employer.
