PERSONALITY TRAITS IN RELATION TO THE TURNOVER INTENTIONS OF THE QUALIFIED EMPLOYEES IN THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
Languages of publication
Turnover has a significant negative impact on an organization. This phenomenon can have an impact within an organization; when employees leave there may be a reduction in the productivity of employees who remain because of reduced employee morale. Turnover can affect the organization's overall performance and results (Abbasi, & Hollman, 2008; Tnay, Othman, Siong, & Lim, 2013). The Slovak Republic is one of the countries where the manufacturing industry has expanded, with large manufacturing companies such as Volkswagen Slovakia, a. s., Kia Motors Slovakia, a. s., PCA Slovakia s.r.o., Samsung Electronics Slovakia s.r.o., Schaeffler Skalica s.r.o., and U.S. Steel Košice. Turnover is generally described as a voluntary act of leaving a current job, or organization (Milovanovic, 2017). In our study we will deal with personality traits in relation to the turnover intentions of qualified employees in the manufacturing industry. The aim of the paper is to find out what the relationships are between the personality traits and the turnover intentions of qualified employees in the manufacturing industry. Neuroticism, level of aspiration and willingness to risk are related to the turnover intentions of qualified employees in the manufacturing industry. Neuroticism and willingness to risk are significant predictors of turnover intentions and, together with other personality traits, explain one-fifth of turnover intentions variation. The main benefit of our research is the examination of the turnover intentions of a specific sample - qualified employees in the manufacturing industry - which is very current due to the boom in the manufacturing industry in the Slovak Republic, as staff turnover has far-reaching consequences for the economy and performance of an organization.
