Janine du Plooy,Gert Roodt
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v36i1.910
Abstract: Orientation: The focus of the study was to investigate the predictive relationship between the work engagement-burnout continuum and turnover intentions. Research purpose: The main purpose of the study was to determine whether work engagement, burnout, organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB) and work alienation are predictors of turnover intentions. Motivation for the study: Organisations operating within the 21st century face significant challenges in the management of talent and human capital. One in particular is voluntary employee turnover and the lack of appropriate business models to track this process. Research design, approach and method: A secondary data analysis (SDA) was performed in a quantitative research tradition on the cross-sectional survey data collected from a large South African Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector company (n = 2429). Main findings: The results of the study confirmed the predictive model (work engagement, burnout, OCB and work alienation) of turnover intention. Specifically, work engagement and OCBs were significantly negatively related to turnover intention; whilst burnout and work alienation were significantly positively related to turnover intention. Several third-variable relationships, such as biographic and demographic variables, indicated statistical significance. Practical/managerial implications: Practical implications of the study could impact on human resource (HR) value-chain activities in the form of evidence-based and improved recruitment and selection procedures, employee retention strategies and training and development interventions. Issues concerning talent management could also be addressed. Contribution/value-add: The study described in this article took Industrial/Organisational (I/O) psychological concepts and linked them in unique combinations to establish better predictive validity of a new turnover intentions model.

Abstract: Organizational knowledge represents an organized group of data and information created and maintained by individuals and business through regulations and procedures [1]. It is essentially related to human action and it is part of the company’s intangible assets [2]. This continuous and complex interaction works as a reciprocal process based on a psychological contract full of reciprocal expectations which stipulate the terms of trade and engagement between people and organizations. On one hand, organizations offer rewards, while on the other hand, employee provides his contribution, conceptualized as partners willing to invest their resources as they reach their objectives and obtain mutual benefits. When tacit knowledge is shared, it allows the creation ideas that contribute to innovation, the increases of firm value and the development of sustainable competitive advantages among others advantages. This paper is based on a comprehensive literature review, by analyzing scientific papers, whose purpose is to examine the influence of relational psychological contract and affective commitment in the intentions of employee to share tacit knowledge, as factors for the transfer to be successful.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v8n8p79
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate impacts of training on organizational commitment and turnover intentions in private sector of Saudi Arabia. The study seeks to focus the relationship between organizational commitment and turnover intentions of the employees. A literature review of organizational commitment and employee turnover provides the basis for the research model and hypotheses. A self-administered questionnaire was used, involving 251 respondents from leading private organizations of Saudi Arabia to collect data and testing the existing theory. The results provide strong support for the hypothesis that is the negative relationship between organizational commitment and turnover intention. Employees’ training is significantly correlated with organizational commitment, turnover intentions and the commitment-turnover relationship.The sample was limited to private organization in Saudi Arabia. It may not be appropriate to generalize the findings across other populations or settings. However, the sample can be viewed as a representative case typical of many other organizations in the same industry. The results provides insight into the impact of organizational commitment on turnover intentions in the specific private sector of Saudi Arabia, which might benefit for managers and policy makers of the concerned organizations and in general for the whole sector. The paper studies the problems that exist in the private sector of Saudi Arabia.

Adam Martin,Gert Roodt
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2008, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v34i1.415
Abstract: A merger can be considered both a phenomenological and signifcant life event for an organisation and its employees, and how people cope with and respond to a merger has a direct impact on the institutional performance in the short to medium term. It is within this context that post-merger perceptions of a tertiary institution were investigated. A predictive model (determined the “best” of 15 predefned models) of turnover intentions was developed for employees of a South African tertiary institution (having undergone its own recent merging process). A systematic model-building process was carried out incorporating various techniques, among others structural equation modelling and step-wise linear regression. The fnal predictive model explained 47% of the variance in turnover intentions. Contrary to expectations, commitment does not correlate more strongly than satisfaction does with turnover intentions.

Journal of Management Research , 2010, DOI: 10.5296/jmr.v3i1.501
Abstract: The purpose of the paper was to investigate the relationships between equity, pay satisfaction, affective commitment and intention to turnover among junior and senior secondary school teachers in Botswana. A total of 232 usable responses were received comprised of 121 Community Junior Secondary School (CJSS) teachers and 111 Senior Secondary School (SSS) teachers. The results of the study indicate that even though the studied teachers are at different levels of schools, there were no major differences in the way the perceived the variables studied. The relationship between equity and pay satisfaction was strong and significant for both junior and senior secondary school teacher. The relationship between equity and affective commitment, pay satisfaction and intention to turnover, and affective commitment and intention were all significant at p < .001. In both the two samples the relationship between pay satisfaction and intention to turnover was negative as well as the relationship between affective commitment and intention to turnover. The hypotheses for this study were supported. The major conclusions are that teachers’ perception of these variables is similar regardless of whether they are at a junior or senior school. Secondly, even though junior secondary school teachers are supposed to hold diplomas, some have a degree that is why there seem to be the same level of understanding of issues by both the two streams.

Journal of Management Research , 2011, DOI: 10.5296/jmr.v3i2.619
Abstract: Drawing on Self-Determination and Work Characteristics theories, we hypothesized that job autonomy and intrinsic motivation were key exogenous variables positively related to affective commitment, which in turn is negatively related to turnover intention, by performing a mediating role. A sample of 442 nurses has been involved in this research. Through the cross-validation technique, the results showed that the hypotheses of this study were supported and affective commitment completely mediated the relationships between job autonomy, intrinsic work motivation and turnover intention. These findings have important implications for healthcare organizations by helping to promote effective work environments and major opportunities of responsibility to workers to develop their own activity. Conclusions were examined considering practical implications for organizations, employees and the need for further researches.
