Abstract

This study aims to study the levels of job satisfaction, job stress, and organizational commitment in addition to finding the relationship between the aforementioned independent variables and turnover intention. By means of non-probability (convenience) sampling, a total of 84 foreign workers employed in the private sector of Malé were selected as respondents. Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ), Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), and Organisational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ) were used to measure the levels of job satisfaction, job stress, and organizational commitment among the respondents respectively. Mobley, Horner, and Hollingsworth’s (1978) instrument to assess turnover intention was used to measure the level of turnover intention among the respondents. Pearson product-moment correlation was used to analyze the relationship between the independent variables (job satisfaction, job stress, and organizational commitment) and turnover intention. The analysis suggested that there was a significant relationship between each independent variable and the dependent variable. Namely, both job satisfaction and organizational commitment had a significant negative correlation with turnover intention, while job stress had a significant positive correlation with turnover intention. Multiple linear regression analysis was conducted to measure the strength of the relationship between the independent variables and turnover intention in addition to finding the level of unique contribution by each variable towards the variance in turnover intention. The results suggest a significant variability in turnover intention is explained by job satisfaction, job stress, and organizational commitment. However, the only organizational commitment was found to have a significant unique contribution towards turnover intention. The methodology of the study can be further improved by increasing the sample size and implementing probability sampling in order for the results to better represent the population as a whole.
