From the Paper:

".... In reality, it just makes good business sense that staff members who are satisfied with their jobs will work harder and remain loyal to the enterprise while their dissatisfied counterparts will tend to experience higher levels of absenteeism, on-the-job injuries and workers compensation claims, and will likely be less effective overall. As the United Kingdom's largest retailer, Tesco represents a good choice for the proposed study because of the significant numbers of staff members employed by the company. It is reasonable to suggest that some employees at Tesco quit their jobs unexpectedly while others remain at work in a highly motivated state until they retire. Therefore, the proposed study can help illuminate current reasons for whatever staff retention rate is being experienced by Tesco and can serve to identify opportunities for improvement by human resource professionals at this company and other similarly situated organizations where enhancing staff motivation and reducing unplanned turnover represent important goals."
