Abstract

This study examined perceived socio-demographic factors predicting affective commitment and turnover intent of employees in insurance organizations. Perceived socio-demographic factors considered in the study were age, biological sex, and salary of employees. The participants were made up of 105 employees consisting of 58 males and 47 females. Self-administered questionnaires comprising of measure of socio-demographic variables, affective commitment scale, and turnover intention scale were used to collect data while t-test for independent groups and one-way analysis of variance were used to test the research hypotheses. Results showed that age does not predict affective commitment of employees, but it predicts turnover intent. Findings also revealed that salary predicts affective commitment and turnover intent of employees, but biological sex did not predict affective commitment and turnover intent. It was recommended that managers should pay more attention to the needs of their employees to reduce turnover intent.
