Abstract

Confronting the rapid structural changes in the education brought by the implementation of the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 and Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act in selected SUCs, private colleges are in stiff competition with public universities in terms of retaining qualified teachers. The teacher shortage is real, significant, growing, and worse than Higher Education Institutions thought due to the massive hiring of public offices. Retaining the workforce is an imperative goal of every organization. Hence, this study explores the retention strategies a Private HEI uses, including their satisfaction level. It also attempts to identify factors that motivate employees that can significantly impact employee retention in an organization. The population for the study was 52 employees taken from a family-owned private HEI in the Philippines. Results indicated that the school uses competitive strategies to satisfy, retain and maintain its best employees and attain its vision, mission, and objectives. More so, employees are satisfied with their jobs, and their retention is affected by several aspects of their work. On the other hand, rewards and recognition appeared to be the least motivation among employees. At the same time, interpersonal relations with leaders are the primary reason they stay within the organization. Thus, enhancement activities to address the needs were developed and proposed.
