Abstract:A modified version of the Mobley (1977) model of turnover was used to investigate the longitudinal effects that perceptions of alternative employment, past search activities and feedback from the job search have upon the turnover decision. These variables were measured at three points in time by phone interviews. Perceptions of alternative employment did not significantly influence the other components of the model. Feedback from the job search influenced only the intention to quit. Past search activities influenced the intention to search, thoughts of quitting and satisfaction. The continued investigation of perceptions of alternative employment upon turnover is discussed. Suggestions are made for future research in the area of turnover.
