Abstract


Background and Purpose: This article tested a structural model that examines the mediating role of organizational commitment on the link between perceived organizational support, perceived alternative job opportunities, and turn­over intention, and the moderating role of job satisfaction on the proposed relationships.
Methodology: Using convenience sampling technique, a self-administered survey was conducted on a pool of Jor­danian small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The obtained data (n=270) were analyzed with contemporary variance-based structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) software SmartPLS v3.
Results: Findings revealed that organizational commitment mediates the association between perceived organiza­tional support and turnover intention, perceived alternative job opportunities and turnover intention. In addition, job satisfaction did not moderate the associations between organizational support, perceived alternative job opportunity and organizational commitment.
Conclusion: The present study is among the first to show the mediating mechanism of organizational commitment on the link between perceived organizational support, perceived alternative job opportunity and turnover intention. Theoretical and practical implications are drawn, before pointing to potential future research directions that build on the evidence-based positions argued for in this study.
Keywords: Organizational Commitment, Employees, Turnover Intention
