Organizations are still finding strategies to retain good workforce, and understand the turnover intentions of employees. Software companies in India are providing good salary packages, excellent performance based bonus and incentives, but all this does not prevent employees from quitting. This paper provides an in-depth understanding on the effect of various factors like work-family life conflict, work stress, role ambiguity, job satisfaction and organizational commitment, on the turnover intentions of an IT employee. This study was carried out in Pune, Maharashtra. The study revealed the clarity of role and adequacy of resources, nurturing employee loyalty, organizational inspiration as the key drivers against turnover intentions. Interestingly, the study found that work-family-conflict and work stress did not lead to turnover intentions.
