Developing retention strategies for retaining professional employees has the potential of providing large cost savings to an organization associated with employee turnover. However, determining the needs of select groups of professional employees can be difficult to determine in today's markets. Through a quantitative fixed research design, this research used a survey to investigate the impact of a non-articulated retention strategy and the retention of civil engineering professionals. The responses from 361 participants indicated that there is statistical support that there is a root cause as to the low retention rate experienced by the organization. However, there does not appear to be a correlation between the root cause and the satisfaction of the civil engineers.
