The type ofinvestigation for research will be qualitative under which qualitative analysis will be done byusing thematic technique. It is helpful in conducting theoretical analysis of study (Bray andBoon, 2011).The reason behind not using quantitative type of investigation is to conduct in-depth analysis of the topic under investigation. However, quantitative type of research justfocuses upon application of statistical tool for the purpose of assessing impact on one variable onother. Owing to this, qualitative method has been applied in the current study so as to carry outin-depth analysis to reach at aim and objectives of the research.On the other hand, inductive approach will be used for data collection method. Here,research will begin from general to specific pattern (Weller and Gulick, 2014). Owing to this, atfirst information related to high employees turnover will be gathered by using different sources(Koslowsky and Krausz, 2012). It will prove to be effective in developing valid outcome forspecific issue of corporation. On the other hand, both primary and secondary data will be4
CMI Registration Number: P004454905collected by using different sources (Garland and Garland, 2012). This tends to supportresearcher in proposing valid recommendations. Apart from this, descriptive research design hasbeen used which helps scholar to conduct study effectively. Similarly, interpretivism researchphilosophy will be used because research ensures inclusion of human being into study. This wayscholar has right to interpret single truth in different aspects. In the same manner, qualitativetechnique will be used for data analysis so that accordingly findings can be presented in rightmanner. For this purpose, thematic analysis will be used to reach at the aim of the study andprovide valid outcome in accordance with collected data.The structure of research is divided into five tasks. The first one is of proposal where inresearch aim and rationale of study is described in clear manner. The section of proposal willinclude research aim, scope and objectives. Along with that, methodology and strategicimplication is also explained.This entire section enable researcher to reach at the aim of thestudy so as to extract valid outcome. However, this will provide rationale of the study andproposed methodology which would be employed in the research. It proves to be effective todevelop deep understanding among researcher.After completion of first task, second deals with number of sources for data collection.

Under this, a source ofdata is one of the imperative aspects which support researcher to draw valid conclusion. Thestudy herewith access different sources of information like journals, books and online material.Basically two types of data are collected such as primary and secondary (Kumar, 2014). Thecollection of primary data is the most important part because here researcher create strong basefor the study (Khan, 2011). This can ensure inclusion of best quality of data so as to draw validconclusion. The primary data can be collected from sources like survey, interview and otherrelated. The present research topic is based on questionnaire methodology. It reflects thatstandard questionnaire is formulated in order to meet objectives of study. The current researchproject consists of close ended questions wherein respondents are provided multiple choices. Theselection of appropriate option is highly based on researcher which leads to draw meaningfuloutcome for collected data (Novikov and Novikov, 2013).The secondary sources of information are already available to researcher. For the currentstudy sources like books and journals as well as online material are used. These all are externalsources but internal can be like sales data and records of customers (Panneerselvam, 2014). Onthe other hand, journals are helpful because researcher can access available findings so thatsignificant difference in available and existing study can be reduced to a great extent. Apart from7
CMI Registration Number: P004454905this, for collecting primary data, it is very important to select appropriate sampling design(Kuada, 2012).Owing to this, simple random sampling has been used where employees of corporationcan equal change to get selected in the study. However, the size of sample for study is kept 20.The reason behind selecting 20 sample size is the represent the views of employees. In thismanner, Periscopix can assess potential reason behind high employee turnover and it effect onproductivity of company (Mackey and Gass, 2015). However, selected employees will becommunicated information related to purpose of study. This aspect tends to maintain ethicalfacet and generate positive attitude among employees. In addition to this, copy of questionnairewill be distributed among selected participants and they will be communicated or clarified abouteach included question (Allen and Bryant, 2012).According to the selected sources of information scholar can easily gather large amountof information and pool of information can be prepared for drawing valid conclusion. Thisproves to be effective in reaching at research aim and objectives. This reflects that both primaryand secondary information support aim and objectives of present research project (Jex and Britt,2014).2.2 Synthesizing the data and information for options that support project aimTheme 1: Employee finds effective working condition in PeriscopixResponseNumber of participantsAlways3Rarely5Most of time7Never5Theme 2: Satisfied with salary of PeriscopixResponseNumber of participantsHighly satisfied4Satisfied5Neutral18
