    Abstract

    Institusi pendidikan tinggi swasta (IPTS) menghadapi masalah kadar pertukaran kerja yang tinggi dalam kalangan staf akademik. Kajian ini bertujuan mengkaji pengaruh variabel perikatan kerja dan penglibatan kerja serta persekitaran kerja beretika atas niat tukar kerja staf akademik IPTS. Kajian ini amat diperlui kerana dapatan kajian lepas menunjukkan hubungan yang lemah atau tidak konsisten antara variabel perikatan kerja dan penglibatan kerja dengan niat tukar kerja. Tambahan lagi, kebanyakan kajian lepas dilaksanakan di negara Barat, dalam industri lain dari sektor pendidikan, yang mempunyai sifat demografi yang sangat berbeza berbanding Malaysia. Data dikutip secara purposif dari 276 staf akademik yang bekerja di IPTS melalui soal selidik. Instrumen yang digunakan dalam kajian ini ialah skala Perikatan Kerja yang dibina oleh Mitchell et al. (2001), skala Penglibatan Kerja Utrecht yang disedia oleh Schaufeli dan Bakker (2003), serta skala Persekitaran kerja beretika yang dihasil oleh Arnaud (2006). The private higher education institution (PHEI) faces high turnover rate among its staff. The main objective of this study is to investigate the relationship among job embeddedness, work engagement, ethical work climate and turnover intention of academic staff in PHEI in Malaysia. There is a need to conduct the study because of inconsistency or weak relationship between job embeddedness and work engagement with turnover intention. Additionally, previous studies focus mainly in the Western context and in industries other than education sector, where the demographic profile varies greatly from that of Malaysia. This research uses purposive sampling and survey method to collect data from 276 academic staff of PHEI. The instruments used in this study were Job Embeddedness scale by Mitchell et al. (2001), Utrecht Employee Engagement scale by Schaufeli and Bakker (2003), and Ethical Work Climate scale by Arnaud (2006).
