In the socio-economic development of every country, the education plays a significant role. In this regard, the higher education institutions (HEIs) are centers of academics where the people acquire skills in the various spheres of life. The HEIs are the main providers of educated and skilled personnel those who pursue their corresponding professions in the different sectors of economy. The nursery of these people must be nurtured by certain capable and highly experienced faculty which is the backbone of every higher education institution. In this regard, the teachers’ loyalty is the only factor behind the success of these academic institutions. The experimental part of the study was anchored on the theoretical framework derived from the literature. About the role of independent variables (empowerment, participation, socialization & demographic attributes), the empirical/field study has come up with surprising results. The loyalty (dependent variable) is significantly associated with the independent variables (empowerment, participation and socialization). In the current study, the correlations are coming as empowerment (p-value=0.000, r=0.481), participation (p-value=0.003, r=0.254) and socialization (p-value=0.000, r=0.416). In the process of regression, only empowerment has appeared as significant with R2 of 0.27 and p-value of 0.000. But, in process of stepwise regression, empowerment has been joined by socialization with significance of 0.031 and 0.000.
