The current study also investigates the mediation effect of job embeddedness. An online survey utilizing a seven-point Likert scale was administered to 284 IT employees from diverse technology companies in Indonesia with a purposive sample technique. This study shows that human resource practice, organizational support perceived by employees, and job embeddedness are essential factors influencing turnover intention.
