This study examined the problem of turnover intention among the administrative personnel in a Private Faith-Based higher institution, Southwest Nigeria, focusing on the fringe benefits accrued to them and fringe benefits not accrued to them. Given this, the study investigated the comfortability of the administrative officers working with inadequate fringe benefits. It also investigated factors that make administrative officers prone to voluntary turnover and gender composition of the affected personnel. The questionnaire was used to collect information from respondents (N=231). Drawing from data retrieved from records, the study came out with 14 fringe benefits accrued to the administrative staff and 14 fringe benefits not accrued to them. Examination of the result reveals that a majority (86.6%) of the respondents were not comfortable working without adequate fringe benefits as against 7.8% who were comfortable. The Chi-Square statistical instrument was used to test the only hypothesis formulated. The p-value was observed to be statistically significant at p =.000 < .01 (1% level of significance) for the variable responses. Therefore, the alternate hypothesis was accepted. The study also revealed 8 factors that make the administrative staff prone to voluntary turnover. Lastly, data retrieved from descriptive background showed that male administrative officers were more involved in voluntary turnover than their female counterparts.
