Employee retention has become an increasingly recurring problem in many organizations today; as a result, organizations are working to design and put measures in place to address this recurring problem. Employee retention refers to the organization's ability to retain its employees over a specified period, particularly in the context of a competitive job market where skilled and talented individuals are in high demand. It involves the strategies, practices, and efforts put forth by an organization to keep its workforce engaged, satisfied, and committed to their roles within the company. Employee retention is a critical aspect of maintaining organizational stability, productivity, and long-term success. Health workers can be empowered to adopt and utilize mobile health in contexts where it is aligned to their needs, workload, training, and skills. In turn, mobile health can empower health workers with skills and confidence when it is perceived as useful and easy to use, in contexts that foster recognition from clients, peers, or supervisors. Thus, retention of long-term employees has the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of their roles, resulting in improved performance and the ability to take on more challenging tasks. Employee rewards refer to the tangible and intangible benefits that organizations provide to their employees in recognition of their contributions, efforts, and achievements in the workplace.
