Abstract

This research extended the existing literature by examining the moderating effects of family background (the number of dependents and family income level) between job embeddedness and turnover intention. Family background and its impact on job embeddedness and turnover intention, to the best of the author’s knowledge, has never been studied before. Data were collected from 362 full-time employees from five FMCG companies in Thailand. The findings demonstrate that organisation fit and organisation sacrifice have a negative relationship with turnover intention; on the other hand, family income level moderates the effect between job embeddedness and turnover intention. With interaction term (family income) shows significant relationship with turnover intention, we can reasonably believe the effect of turnover intention would be different for individuals who come from families with different income levels. This paper sheds light on an untouched academic field and hopefully can be extended to further investigate this area in the future.
