Abstract

This research examined the impact of human resource planning on employee retention at Shell Oil, Lagos, Nigeria. This study applied Qualitative Research Investigation Approach. Four thousand five hundred (4,500) jobs make up the workforce. Taro Yamane 's formula calculated the response rate. The only approach adopted was systematic and validated questionnaires. The questionnaire was "Human Resources Preparation and Management Questionnaire" (HRPRQ). The reliability of the test was assessed before collecting data. Three hundred and sixty (367) questionnaires were distributed randomly, of which only three hundred and forty-two (342) were obtained and identified. Using qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques , data obtained was analyzed for windows using SPSS software 21.0. Results of this study showed that human resource planning (training and development, benefits and recognition, job progression, health and safety) has a substantial aggregate impact on employee retention. Studies have shown that human resource planning (training and growth, benefits and recognition, career promotion, and health and safety) has a significant relative effect on employee retention. Therefore, the correlation between training and development and employee retention rate is important. Studies, however, have shown a strong correlation between promotion and compensation and employee retention rate. Additionally, the relationship between health and safety was discovered, and employee retention rate is essential. And thus, research findings have shown that growth in jobs has a major impact on employee retention rate. Therefore, based on the outcome of this study , it is suggested that management of this company should aim to take all human resource planning construction as required to remain competitive on the global labor market.
