Job Embeddedness, Perceived Supervisory Support, Turnover, Turnover Intentions
Psychology; Organizational behavior
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intentions as moderated by perceived supervisory support. A total of 413 participants from a large public university in California participated in this study. It was found that there was a significant positive relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intentions such that those who were embedded in their jobs were less likely to have turnover intentions. In addition, there was a significant and negative relationship found between perceived supervisory support and turnover intentions such that those who perceived that they had supervisory support had more turnover intentions. A moderating relationship was not found. Since this study is believed to be one of the first of its kind to examine perceived supervisory support as a moderator, further research is needed. Implications of these findings are that organizations should aid their employees in becoming embedded in their organization as this should reduce turnover intentions.
