Resumen

MARTIN, Adam  y  ROODT, Gert. Perceptions of organisational commitment, job satisfaction and turnover intentions in a post-merger South African tertiary institution. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.1, pp.23-31. ISSN 2071-0763.

A merger can be considered both a phenomenological and significant life event for an organisation and its employees, and how people cope with and respond to a merger has a direct impact on the institutional performance in the short to medium term. It is within this context that post-merger perceptions of a tertiary institution were investigated. A predictive model (determined the "best" of 15 predefined models) of turnover intentions was developed for employees of a South African tertiary institution (having undergone its own recent merging process). A systematic model-building process was carried out incorporating various techniques, among others structural equation modelling and step-wise linear regression. The final predictive model explained 47% of the variance in turnover intentions. Contrary to expectations, commitment does not correlate more strongly than satisfaction does with turnover intentions.
