However, the issue of employee turnover exists in most of the organization throughout the world. To prevent an excessive employee turnover rate, an organization has to set an effective retention mechanism. Among a blend of employee retention mechanisms, reward management is the one which has a great impact on turnover.

The correlation result implied that pay has strong negative relationship (r=-573, p<0.01) with employees' turnover intention, moderate negative relationship obtained with benefit (r=-0.363, p<0.01), similarly, moderate negative relationship obtained with promotion (r=-0.423, p<0.01), strong negative relationship obtained with recognition & appreciation (r=-0.542, p<0.01), work environment also found (r=-0.720, p<0.01). Whereas, training & development (r=-0.202, p>0.01) weak relationship is obtained with turnover intention. The result that obtained from regression analysis implied, 62.2% of variation in employees’ turnover intention is explained by pay, benefits, promotion, recognition & appreciation, training & development and work environment. Among these independent variables, work environment has a greater rate of change.
