Abstract

Objective - This study investigates the mediation role of job satisfaction in the relationship between work stress and turnover intention. A study about turnover intention in the textile company is still rarely done in Indonesia. This study can fill the gap regarding the topic.

Methodology/Technique - A non-probability sampling method with an accidental sampling technique was used, and we get 110 usable responses from a textile company in West Java, Indonesia. Macro Process with SPSS was used to measure the regression and the mediation.

Findings - The study found that work stress has a negative effect on job satisfaction. Work stress significantly related to turnover intention in a positive direction. Job satisfaction did not have a significant relation with turnover intention. Thus, in this study, we found no mediation role in job satisfaction.

Novelty - Evidently, work stress solely took part in shaping the turnover intention.

Type of Paper - Empirical

Keywords: Work Stress, Job Satisfaction, Turnover Intention, Textile Company, Mediation
