The mediating role of workplace attitudes on the leader–member exchange—Turnover intention relationship.

We analyzed the role of three organizational stressors, organizational change, perceptions of politics, and interpersonal conflict at work on the relationship between leader member exchange (LMX) and turnover intention. Our contention is that LMX reduces various organizational stressors and, through that reduction, reduces turnover intention. We tested our model using 281 respondents from a diverse set of organizations. Results indicated that each stressor partially mediated the LMX–turnover intention relationship. In light of the findings, we recommend managers take efforts to develop strong LMX relationships and reduce the level of organizational stressors through appropriate information sharing.
