JOB EMBEDDEDNESS: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE

Harshita Agrawal, Anushree Singh

Abstract


Job embeddedness (JE) is an emerging concept in the field of employee turnover research and suggests some novel and stimulating ways to think about employee retention globally. Although research implications of JE are encouraging, there is a paucity of research on the topic domestically, which limits the practical efficacy of the same. Indian organizations, therefore, being bitten by high attrition rate, need a better understanding of the concept of JE. The present paper, based on the literature review, thus discusses the following aspects related to job embeddedness specifically: the concept of job embeddedness, dimensions and measurement of job embeddedness, the predictive validity of job embeddedness and promising expansions of the same across nations and organizations. At the end, we embed our suggestions as to how organizations can implement a sound retention management program incorporating job embeddedness.
