Achieving Organisational Prosperity through Employee Motivation and Retention: A Comparative Study of Strategic HRM Practices in Malaysian Institutions

Abstract

A growing concern among companies operating in the Malaysian labour market with high job mobility is how to maintain a workforce capable of fulfilling corporate exigencies. This study compares and contrasts how strategic human resource management activities from different country origins are implemented in Malaysian companies to motivate and retain talented cadres. The findings reveal there were significant differences across the study countries. Moreover, the study results demonstrate that, while an attractive pay package is effective in manifesting job motivation, complementary strategic human resources practices are profoundly important in reducing staff turnover. These findings are discussed in terms of the other application aspects of well integrated human resource practices.
