Abstract

Employees possess strength to an organisation and with an increased amount of employee turnover issue and the growing phenomena of work stress it has become important to understand psychological behaviour of employees towards turnover. The current research focuses on examining factors of turnover intent by giving emphasis on job satisfaction as an intermediate development to psychological availability at workplace to improve employee engagement by underpinning the theoretical review of Maslow’s hierarchy need theory, Herzberg’s two-factor theory, image theory. The data was generated by interviewing eight participants of which three participants were male and five were females working across different sectors to get an outline in a broader perspective. The method that was used to collect the data was semi-structured interviews to generate qualitative data and gain knowledge on the realities of employee’s mindset. Moreover, thematic analysis was carried out to discover themes relevant for the qualitative data.

The finding in the research shows that employees like to feel they are valued physically and emotionally. A significant finding was discovered with an impact on turnover intent, psychological meaning, task attribute and management style and process. Thus, based on these findings the researcher gives emphasis on spiritual wellbeing of workplace as intention to improvement of turnover.

The research finding may be significant and can help organisations management and Human resource management.
