Abstract

This study examined the relationships of job satisfaction, organizational commitment, supervisory commitment, and job turnover among public sector engineers in Oman. Questionnaires were adopted, pilot-tested, and used in assessing job satisfaction, organizational commitment, supervisory commitment,and turnover intention. Pearson correlation and One-way ANOVA are conducted for the data analysis. Findings showed that the respondents were satisfied with their pay (mean=3.60), nature of work (mean=3.44), and supervision (mean=3.40). The result also revealed that turnover intention is significantly inversely associated with job satisfaction, organizational commitment and supervisory commitment. The overall job satisfaction had the highest negative significant correlation with turn over intention (r = -0.473); satisfaction with pay (r = -0.179; p < 0.01), with nature of work (r = -0.170) and with supervisor (r = -0.160; p < 0.01). It was also found out that statistically, organizational commitment was significantly and negatively correlated to turnover intention (r = -0.182; p < 0.01); and supervisory commitment is also negatively correlated to turnover intention (r = -0.164). This study provides guidelines for supervisors to better understand how to reduce employee turnover, increase job satisfaction, organizational commitment and supervisor commitment. Some implications of these results for practice and research are also discussed.
