The aim of the study was to look at the relationship between organisational incentive schemes and continuance commitment among final year university students. There were 17 male students and 43 female students. Perceptions of participants regarding organisational incentive schemes and continuance commitment were assessed using the short-term incentive questionnaire, long-term incentive questionnaire, the investment in employee development questionnaire, the employee share incentive questionnaire and the continuance commitment questionnaire. Data were analysed using correlations and multiple regression analysis. The results showed that participants were more interested in organisational incentive schemes that were on a long-term basis and organisational incentive schemes that focused on the career development of employees. Such incentives were associated with good governance necessary for the retention of talent in organisations. There were significant correlations between long-term incentive schemes, investment in employee development schemes and continuance commitment. Multiple regression analysis showed a significant relationship between the predictor variables and continuance commitment.
