The relationship between employee benefit management and employee retention.
The purpose of this study is twofold. The first purpose is to investigate the hypothesis as follows: the enrichment of the employee benefit management and the improvement of job attitudes mediate the relation between the adoption of family-friendly policies and the employee retention. The second purpose is to investigate the gender gap in the above-mentioned model. The facts and conclusions presented in this paper were obtained from a study of 1228 employees. Analysis of covariance structures was adopted for testing hypothesis. About the first one, significant mediator effects of the enrichment of the employee benefit management and the improvement of job satisfaction were clarified. About the second point, there was no gender gap in the above-mentioned retention process by the employee benefit management, except for the number of the employee benefit management practices and the organizational tenure. The necessity of additional research about international comparison, investigation of organization, longitudinal investigation, etc. was pointed out. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
