The purpose of this paper is to determine the causal relationship between talent management dimensions such as perceived organisational support (POS), human capital index and its influence on the turnover intentions of Generation Y employees in Indian hotel industry. This research will also examine how the intension of hotel employees to quit relates to the talent management practices (TMP) in the Indian hotel establishments.


This research will suggest an integrated conceptual model based on earlier literature where the significant relationships between the relevant constructs will be confirmed. For data collection, a cross-sectional survey plan will be used to collect data from the Generation Y employees working in the 5-star hotels across India. This technique is appropriate for the descriptive and predictive functions associated with correlation research and for measuring the inter-relationship amongst several variables used in the study.


Pearson correlations was applied which exhibited a practically substantial positive relationship between the organisation’s TMP and POS. It was also found that the perceived supervisor support does not mediate the relationship between TMP and intention to quit. The results of this research also approve that employees’ perception regarding the organisation’s actions has direct consequence on their perception of support from their supervisors. The research also found essentially significant negative association between POS and the employee’s intention to quit, where high levels of POS is associated with a reduced employee’s intention to quit the hotel organisation.


This study confirmed a causal relationship amongst the relevant construct, i.e. perceived TMP, the POS, the supervisory support and the Generation Y’s intention to quit. It also provided an understanding for the management to comprehend upon the perceptions regarding TMP and support and how it influences an employee’s intent to leave the organisation in the Indian hotel industry.
