Employees stay with companies as they become embedded in their jobs and their communities. As they participate in their professional and community life, they develop a web of connections and relationships, both on and off the job. Leaving a job would require severing or rearranging these social and value networks. The more embedded employees are in an organization, the more likely they are to stay.
