Turnover intention is basically the manifestation of one's inner feeling about his or her job. In other words, it is an emotional state linked to one's job, which would effectively be translated into job behaviors, and in due course would positively or negatively affect the overall performance of an employee. In this context, the level of turnover intention experienced by the employee is greatly influenced by various personal, pull and push factors. The main objective of this paper is to identify factors that affect employee turnover intention, so the method that could be employed to investigate this problem is a descriptive survey.
