Abstract:

The present study examined the differential effects of a combination of individual, role, and perceived task characteristic measures on satisfaction, organizational commitment, and turnover decision-making. Survey data obtained from 739 health service administration, science, or clinical care professionals, analyzed via a combination of correlational and ANOVA techniques, indicated that task characteristics predominantly influenced job satisfaction and turnover intention while a combination of individual and role measures were related to organizational commitment and turnover decision-making. Implications for the use of individual roleorganizational compatability concepts as determinants of organizational commitment and retention are discussed. Author
