Abstract

The objectives of this research are: 1) to study the personal factors, the level of perceived organizational support factors and the turnover intention of employees in Bangkok; 2) to investigate the relation between personal factors, perceived through organizational support factors that influence employees’ turnover intention in Bangkok. The sample consists of 385 respondents employed in Bangkok, and the data was collected by means of using the multi-stage sampling methods. Questionnaires were used as the research instrument. Multiple linear regressions were used to test the hypotheses. The results show that the majority of the respondents in the sample were less than 30 y.o., single, with bachelor’s degree and less than 5 years of work experience. The results of the regression analysis indicate that the personal factor of degree and the perceived organizational support (promotion) affect the turnover intention at the 0.05 and 0.01 levels of significance.
