Abstract: High labour turnover in organisations has significantly posed some problems. This is observed, especially when highly skilled employees leave organisations in pursuit of so called greener pastures which in turn creates a knowledge gap in most organisations. The study investigated the influence of training as a determinant of employee retention among academic staff members at a selected higher learning institution in South Africa. The study employed a quantitative research approach and questionnaires were used to collect data. The sample comprised of 129 academic staff members and the data was analysed through descriptive and inferential statistics. Research findings revealed that there is a relationship between training and employee retention but there is no significant mean difference on the employee intention to leave on the basis of their age.
