Sewing machine operators have become the number one occupation which the highest number of employees quitted among the top 20 occupations in Sri Lanka. Therefore, the primary objective of this study is to find the employee value proposition (EVP) of sewing machine operators in the apparel manufacturing industry in Sri Lanka which will help to increase the employees’ intention to retain (IR) with the existing organization. The ontological stance is Representationalism while the epistemological stance is positivism choosing the deductive approach, quantitative research strategy. The self-administered questionnaires were obtained from 386 sewing machine operators covering all 13 large-scale companies in Sri Lanka. According to the findings, employee brand equity (EBE) has the strongest impact on employees’ intention to retain followed by reward and recognition and employee welfare respectively.
