Abstract

In this competitive era, organizations are continuously looking new ways to develop their human capital. This leads to a new challenge i.e., how organizations can retain their skilled human resource. Present study is focused to find out the relationship among job stressor, workload, work place environment and employee turnover intentions. A random sample of 250 employees from textile industry of Pakistan is selected. Total 109 employees responded and filled the questionnaire, with a response rate of 44%. Structural modelling is used for empirical analysis of data using AMOS 18 software. Results reveal that employee turnover intentions are positively related with job stressor and work load. While negative relationship with work place environment is reported.
