The turnover intention (TI) is a very challenging concept for an organisation, but there are seemingly not many instruments around to measure TI. The purpose of this paper was to develop and validate an instrument to measure the TI concept of Generation Y in Thailand.
Ten questions were developed as an instrument to measure TI based on previous concepts and theories and verified using exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and convergent validity.
Three dimensions were proposed to measure TI including aspects of intention to quit, turnover thinking and opportunities for new job with excellent reliability at 0.811, 0.837 and 0.830, respectively.
A measurement scale to assess TI of Generation Y salespeople has never been studied in Thailand. The measurement scale was proved to be valid and will enable human resource officers, divisions and companies to accurately analyse the level of employee TI. This instrument can help educators and researchers to better understand and comprehend factors of employee TI.
