The scholar has clarified and justified the theories engaged in the study.It presents six main constructs of the current study, specifically higher salary and benefits program; quality work life; ease of immigration procedures; international exposure; more job opportunities and more challenging job scopes and social network and one moderating variable explicitly personality which is categorized into two: Big Five Traits and Proactive. These constructs are explored to determine if they present a significant impact on brain drain. Established on the literature, it is evident that the brain drain phenomenon is an adverse trend that needs immediate and particular attention. It is a matter of great concern especially to policy makers of nations as these talents are needed to be retained to spur the development of the home economy. The conceptual framework and hypotheses explored in this study are presented while gaps in the research were identified and highlighted.
