MetadataShow full item record
This study focuses on the antecedents of turnover intention among entry level low skill/wage employees of midsize business in hotel industry. The purpose of the study was to develop and test a theoretical model that explained the interrelationships between organizational commitment, job satisfaction, job embeddedness, and their effect on turnover intention. The data were gathered of 198 individuals with less than three years of tenure in hotel industry using Qualtrics web-based platform. Structural equation modeling using AMOS 24 statistical software was used to test the full structural model of the proposed model. The findings supported the direct negative relationship of job satisfaction on turnover intention. Moreover, a positive direction relationship was found from continuing commitment on turnover intention, and from job embeddedness on job satisfaction. There was also a positive correlation between job embeddedness and organizational commitment. This study was one of the few to test the relationship between job embeddedness and job satisfaction. The proposed model was unique and revealed opportunities for further investigations.
