Title: The Impact of Job Satisfaction on Academic Staff Retention in Sudanese Universities
Author: Elsayed, Rania Medani
Abstract: The purpose of this research is to explore the impact of job satisfaction on academic staff retention in Sudanese universities. It aims to figure out whether the intrinsic factors of job satisfaction (achievement, recognition, advancement, growth, and the work) and extrinsic/ hygiene factors (pay, job security, supervision, working conditions, company policies and coworkers) influence retention of academic staff. This exploratory research was conducted using the quantitative technique. The total population of the academic staff, in the thirteen public and private universities, covered by the research is 7182. Both Stratified random sampling and simple random sample techniques were used and a total of 180 respondents were sampled for the research from the thirteen universities. Data were collected using a questionnaire which has close-ended questions. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics for the examination and analysis, correlation, and multiple regressions were also used. The quantitative data were divided into categories based on themes that were aligned to the research objectives and were included in the discussion of findings. The research revealed that job satisfaction does influence academic staff retention (P.value < 0.001) and both intrinsic and extrinsic factors are influencing retention (p.value < 0.001). However, the contribution of the extrinsic factors to staff retention outweighed the contribution of the intrinsic factors. The research recommends that both intrinsic and extrinsic factors must be in place to decrease intention to leave, and thus enhance academic staff retention in these institutions. The research also recommends that the unfavorable aspects relating to pay must be addressed in order to make these institutions competitive.
