Hello, people, can these two words be used together, like 'many factors inspire a worker to remain in the same company'.

Many many thanks

    The problem here is that "inspire" doesn't work well with "a worker to remain". There is no problem in principle with pairing factors and inspire.

    I wouldn't say "remain" is negative, as such, but there may be something to your idea, in that typically inspiration leads to change, causing someone to do something new, and remaining is the opposite of changing.

    If your context is what I think it is, I think "influence" would be a better choice than "inspire" (even though "influence" is also often used in the context of change).
