The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between four factors of HR practices which are training and development, performance appraisal, financial/health benefit, selection and recruitment, and employee retention in lntel Technology Sdn. Bhd. The research instrument used to obtain data was questionnaire. A total of 186 questionnaires were randomly distributed to employees in Shared Services Center & Finance department of lntel Technology(M) Sdn. Bhd. However, only 152 respondents returned the completed questionnaires. Data was analysed by "Statistical Package for Social Science" (SPSS Window) Version 12.0. Correlation analysis was used to test the inter-correlation between the variables. Correlation result shows that all four variables of HR practices i.e training and development, performance appraisal, financial/health benefit and selection and recruitment were correlated with employee retention in the organization. However, in the multiple regression analysis, it was found that HR practices (trainivg and development, performance appraisal, and financial/health benefit) were related to employee retention. Performance appraisal was the strongest predictor of employee retention, followed by training and development, and financial/health benefit. These findings show that the related factors should be given attention to retain employees in the organisation. Some suggestions have been offered for the organization and for future research.
