dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to explore and describe the challenges that a Namibian bank faced in recruiting and retaining skilled employees. The study adopted a qualitative research approach and the data were collected through face-to-face interviews with 20 participants from the Namibian bank. The researcher used the Five-Phased Data Analysis Cycle as described by Yin (2011) to analyse the data. Ensuring trustworthiness, the researcher used Guba's Model of Trustworthiness as cited by Krefting (1990). The major findings of the study were the shortcomings in the Namibian bank remuneration structure, lack of training and no employee recognition. The recommendations of the study are that the Namibian bank needs to implement training and development for its employees, review its remuneration structure and demonstrate appreciation of staff by showing recognition, better salaries and incentives. en
