Employee Commitment and Turnover Intention: Perspectives from the Nigerian Public Sector
Pepple, Dennis Gabriel
This study investigates the conceptualization of employee commitment and turnover intention in the Nigerian public sector using a qualitative approach. Findings sug-gest that (i) employees expressed a lack of sense of ownership and attached meaning to commitment based on (self-help) benefit gained from their organization, and (ii) the lack of scrutiny and accountability in the public sector resulted in low employee turnover intention. The study is novel for developing a framework underscoring how context may affect the conceptualisation of employee commitment and turnover intention.
