Nazir Haider Shah, Nabi Bux Jumani


Job satisfaction and turnover intention are matters of concern related to any organization. This study aimed to examine the relationship of job satisfaction and turnover intention of private school teachers. This study was descriptive in nature. All the teachers (13764) working in private secondary schools in the district Rawalpindi and Islamabad were the target population of the study. 860 teachers were randomly sampled. Standardized Questionnaires i.e. Job Descriptive Index (JDI) and Turnover Intention Questionnaire (TIQ) were used as instruments of this study. Independent sample t-test and Linear regression analysis was used for the analysis of data. Findings of the study suggested that pay and continuance commitment was dominantly affecting the turnover intention of the school teachers. The study concluded that there was a strong relationship between job satisfaction and its indicator (pay) with turnover intention among private secondary school teachers. However, it was found that promotion, work itself and supervision showed moderate relationship with turnover intention among the teachers. It was recommended that private schools should make comprehensive policy, program of teacher deployment, their continuous professional development through an academy of education with international linkages, incentive-based schemes, involvement of community and building up public private partnership.
