Available data from previous years were also analyzed to estimate the financial and non-financial losses of the organization. The study addresses and rates the importance of some of the most common factors that determine the overall satisfaction of employees, such as salary and other benefits, career opportunity and personal growth, and work life protocols, including policies and procedures, working environment conditions, supervisor behavior, and colleague behavior and support.
