Abstract:

An emerging literature has demonstrated that proportionately more dissatisfied employees intend to leave their employing organization while proportionately more satisfied employees intend to remain. The purpose of the present study was to apply criteria for aggregation of individual-level data to the group-level using a measure of job satisfaction in the prediction of aggregated group-level intent to leave. Data collected from 5,586 employees of the Federal Aviation Administration provided partial support for aggregation. These results have general implications for the use of individual-level job satisfaction scores as predictors of group-level intent to leave.
