The purpose of this research is to identify the effects of financial and non-financial compensation on employees’ turnover intention at Saudi Aramco after an initial public offering (IPO). A questionnaire was used for collecting data from 142 participants, and a simple linear regression model was used to analyse the survey results. This study revealed that the respondents agree that financial compensation is an important factor in their tendency to continue working at their company and that training is another important factor that motivates them to stay. Further, the results show that financial compensation affects employees’ turnover intentions, training positively affects their retention at their respective company, and promotion policies correlate with their turnover intentions. The study recommends that companies in the energy sector should give more attention to financial compensation, training, and promotion to motivate employees to remain in their companies. According to the research results, there are positive relationships between retention and continuing in a company based on the independent variables of financial compensation, training, and promotion.
