Berrios-Ortiz, Edwin J.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This research examined the relationship between job embeddedness, self-efficacy, organizational commitment, and job satisfaction as predictors of an IT employee's desire to stay (turnover intentions) at his or her position with his or her current employer. A survey instrument was administered to a sample of a population of IT professionals currently employed. Four research questions were used to address the problem statement and the purpose of this study. The first research question inquired about the relationship between job embeddedness and an IT employee's desire to stay (turnover intentions) at his or her position with his or her current employer. It was determined that job embeddedness had a negative linear relationship with turnover intentions. The second research question inquired about the effect that self-efficacy would have on the relationship between job embeddedness and an IT employee's desire to stay (turnover intentions) at his or her position with his or her current employer. It was determined that self-efficacy had a moderating effect on the relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intentions. The third research question inquired about the effect that organizational commitment would have on the relationship between job embeddedness and an IT employee's desire to stay (turnover intentions) at his or her position with his or her current employer. It was determined that organizational commitment had a moderating effect on the relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intentions. The fourth research question inquired about the effect that job satisfaction would have on the relationship between job embeddedness and an IT employee's desire to stay (turnover intentions) at his or her position with his or her current employer. It was determined that job satisfaction did not have an effect on the relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intentions.
