The purpose of this paper is to investigate the moderating influence of organizational climate in the relationship between job stress and intent to stay.
This study has used a non-probability sampling design for data collection. A semi-structured questionnaire has been prepared and a street survey has been carried out at popular public places in Macau.
This study shows that stressful employees working in organizations characterized by unsupportive organizational climate had far less desire to stay with the organization than those working in organizations with supportive organizational climate.
Street intercept survey is a technique of convenience sampling. This makes it difficult to generalize the study’s findings to the entire population.
Few studies to date have paid attention to the influence of organizational climate between job stress and intent to stay. The multi-industry context from which the data are collected suggests that the results and findings are useful to managers and practitioners from across a broad range of business sectors.
