I have been asked by my HR manager to assist with a study to try to determine the factors related to employee attrition at the place of my employment.

I have created this hypothesis:
Employees who feel their achievements go unnoticed are likely to leave ABC Gas Co. than employees who feel recognized and valued in the ABC Gas Co.

I need help in describing my hypothesis for this study, as well as to describe how I would test my assumptions by stating the following:
Which research design will I utilize?
What would be a reason for choosing the research design?
What data collection techniques will I use?
Why is choosing these data collection techniques best
Are there any potential problems I might encounter while conducting my research
What if any, strategies can I use to minimize these problems.

Thank you in advance for all and any help you can give!

2. What would be a reason for choosing the research design?

This is because intact groups will be used (e.g., those who remain working and those who do not) to test the hypothesis and the ...

Solution Summary

Regarding employee attrition, this solution provides assistance in developing the research study e.g. design, data collection, etc. It also looks at potential problems and strategies to address these problems.
