The project seeks to find the correlation between retention and labor expectations of the Millennial workforce in Mexico. The study was done with a sample of 422 workers between the ages of 18 and 37, at several types of companies in Mexico, that are experiencing a high rate of staff turnover. The retention and stay-at-work questionnaires were first validated through an exploratory factorial analysis. Subsequently, models were created using the multiple linear regression technique. The results show that work expectations, such as personal and organizational factors are important for staff retention. In addition, our findings are compared with others obtained and a list of recommendations for the development of organizational strategies is proposed as a means of employee retention.
