The project is to test and research the main factors that influence recruitment and retention with a focus on the company Sherwin-Williams. Specifically, this paper explores peer-reviewed articles that report on recruitment and retention findings from experts and everyday practitioners within human resources management and the retail industry. Major influences on turnover highlighted in this report include methods of pursuing talent, brand awareness and its effects on recruiting millennials and generation Z, compensation and benefits and their ability to attract and retain talent, and the integral component of job satisfaction and its role in employee and management retention. In addition, information regarding Sherwin-Williams has also been researched, including a deeper look into the firm's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to provide useful information on how the position of the firm also influences its ability to acquire and retain talent.
