Abstract:This study explores the relationship between peer group interaction, perceived climate, perceived organizational support, supervisory relationship on employee retention. Data were collected among academic staff in one of the public universities in Malaysia. A cross-sectional survey using hardcopy and online was used to collect data, 225 valid responses were analyzed. Besides, the structural equation modeling technique has been used to test the proposed hypothesized model. The study concludes the positive effect of peer group interaction, perceived climate, perceived organizational support, supervisory relationship on employee retention. Universities need to provide supportive environments that enable staff to remain focused and dedicated to maintain high morale and reduce academic staff turnover.
