To achieve that purpose, the study specifically assessed economic factors influencing employee retention, explored the institutional supports and examined the physical environment that influence employee retention.

The finding established that, among others, economic factors are among the factors influencing employee retention. That is, the majority of the employees confirmed that they continue working at NHIF because they are benefitting economically. They get paid the salary, get loans and the job is much secured. All of which ensure their survival economically. Secondly, institutional supports have been positively appreciated since the employees had shown that through acknowledging the relationship that exists between employees themselves and their employer. On top of that, employees are helped by their employer because they have been receiving seminars on retirement plans every year. This ensures that employees are in good position to make decision wisely, especially for those who are about to retire from work. Moreover, the employees added that they are happily working in the place where its physical environment attracts them from working positively.
