Bernard Muhangi Wakabi


Abstract: Organisations in all sectors are operating in highly competitive environment which requires that these institutions retain their core employees in order to gain and retain competitive advantage. Because of globalisation and new methods of management, different organisations have experienced competition both locally and globally in terms of market and staff. The role of leaders in employee retention is critical since their leadership styles impact directly on the employees feelings about the organization. The paper sought to find out the influence of leadership style on staff retention in organisations. The study was purely based on literature review. From the review of several empirical studies it was established that leadership style significantly influences intention to leave of staff and hence there is need to embrace a leadership style that promotes staff retention.
