Abstract: Attrition is one of the biggest challenge for any industry as it comes with many demerits such as loss of productivity, incurring of various costs such as training & development, recruitment etc. According to the Compensation Trends Survey conducted by Deloitte Human Capital Consulting, the IT/ITES industries of the Indian market have faced 15% of the attrition that is higher for any industry. Thus, the companies of this industry are focusing to decrease the turnover intention in order to reduce the actual employee turnover. The aim of this research is to find out the influence that Job Satisfaction and organizational commitment have on the turnover intention on the employees. Various research suggests that organizational commitment and turnover intentions are negatively correlated. Also, the studies suggest that Job Satisfaction and employee turnover intentions have a negative relationship. This study has been conducted to examine the relationship between Job Satisfaction, organizational commitment, and turnover intention for the IT/ITES industry employees with a special focus to BPO segment. The researchers have taken data from 500 employees of the BPO segment from 3 major cities of Gujarat i.e. Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and Baroda. The researchers have used Multiple regression and ANOVA to examine the influence of the organizational commitment & job satisfaction on the turnover intention. The result shows that higher level of organizational commitment reduced the turnover intention. This research can help the BPO organizations to formulate & implement the strong retention strategies. Also, this study provides a direction to the academicians to explore further dimensions of the research in the various industries as well as various regional backgrounds.
