The purpose of this research was to further refine and evaluate the extent to which job embeddedness influences voluntary turnover. Specifically, this thesis sought to determine the effectiveness of job embeddedness in explaining additional incremental variance in intent to leave, above what is usually accounted for with traditional attitudinal variables. Additionally, the individual effects of tenure, education level, organizational rank, and pay were evaluated to determine if they moderated the effects of job embeddedness on a person's level of intent to leave.
