Abstract:Some researchers have suggested that absence and turnover should be conceptualized as aspects of a broader employee withdrawal syndrome. An expanded model of employee withdrawal behaviors emphasizing their adaptive function is presented and selected hypotheses tested. In a longitudinal study of new hospital employees, intentions to quit, turnover, absence, attempts to change the job, and health disorders were negatively correlated with job satisfaction; lateness and a self-report Avoidance behaviors scale were not. Use of adaptive behaviors was found to have remedial effects for workers' health, but not for subsequent job attitudes. A competitive test of three possible relations among categories of adaptive behaviors provided some evidence of a progression of withdrawal effect.
