Abstract : This study investigated the validity of Mobley's (1977) model of the intermediate linkages in the turnover decision process among employees working in two diverse setting. A pattern of results generally consistent with the model was found in each sample. However, regression analyses generally failed to double cross-validate either within or between samples. This was true both when the contribution of variables to the prediction of turnover was analyzed individually and when variables were grouped into more homogeneous sets of predictors. Employee commitment to the organization was the only variable that double, cross-validated, both within and between samples, in the prediction of turnover. (Author)
