Abstract

This study analyses the impact of talent management on retention rates within the Irish hospitality industry. The dissertation utilizes a quantitative research approach and a probability sampling methodology to achieve its goal. A quantitative questionnaire was distributed to employees within the Irish hospitality industry. The sample size for this research was 150, and the questionnaire received 152 responses. The findings highlight the ongoing challenge within the hospitality industry of retaining employees. The study identified the reasons employees chose to work within the hospitality industry, and the biggest challenges they face. Intent to remain within the industry and satisfaction levels were also measured. The study identified a large proportion of Irish hospitality organizations follow an exclusive talent management approach, and employees’ attitudes towards this. Recommendations on how to use talent management to increase employee engagement and retention levels are discussed.
