Abstract:Employee turnover is a phenomenon that many organizations in The Netherlands are facing today, especially in the IT sector. Literature that explains the underlying factors for turnover behaviour in the IT sector is scarce. Therefore, this study aims to extend employee turnover literature by investigating the impact of satisfaction with human resource (HR) practices and on-the-job embeddedness on turnover intention. In addition, the mediating effect of on-the-job embeddedness on the relationship between satisfaction with HR practices and turnover intention is tested. Data were collected through a quantitative survey from 110 IT professionals from different disciplines in The Netherlands. The results from this study provide multiple useful theoretical contributions to literature and practical implications for organizations and IT managers seeking to actively develop effective retention strategies for their IT professionals.
