Abstract:

This study sought to 1 Compare the relative predictive powers of job attachment and job satisfaction with respect to turnover among a sample of public employees and 2 Compare the relative influences on both attitudes of individual and job characteristics. It was found that attachment was a more effective predictor of turnover than satisfaction, even when the alternative attitude was partialled out. In addition, it was found that individual employee characteristics were more strongly related to attachment than were job characteristics, while the opposite was found for satisfaction. The findings are discussed in the light of previous evidence and implications are drawn for the practice of management. Author
