Reviews the literature on organizational commitment as a factor contributing to successful retention strategies focusing on the critical aerospace industry. Other areas reviewed include: personal, work and cultural values; trust and empowerment; ethical behaviour; charismatic leadership and job satisfaction as they impact on commitment and retention. A survey was designed and interviews conducted with engineers in one of the world’s premier providers of micro aviation component technologies for training and optimization solutions for aerospace and defence clients. Survey questions were designed from the literature to examine employee perceptions of all variables identified. Proposed solutions and recommendations are included to support the survey results that were relatively encouraging for the organization under study. The basic objective of engineer retention was supported. Final critical recommendations did correlate with the literature and findings of the study.
