Antecedents of Intention to Leave the Organization
A Systematic Review
Abstract: The intention to leave the organization is a cognitive, deliberate and conscious process of a person quitting the organization he or she works in a near future. This study was designed to systematize the antecedents of the intention to leave the organization in empirical studies published in Portuguese between 2000-2015. We used a systematic review method to research 31 journals, proceedings of the Encontros da Associação Nacional de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa em Administração (EnANPAD), ScIELO database, Google Scholar, and Theses and Dissertations Catalog - CAPES. Thirty-five publications were selected for analysis, where 18 antecedents were identified. Based on these results and on the theory of planned behavior, a model is proposed for understanding the relationships between the intention to leave, its antecedents, and the actual voluntary behavior of leaving organizations. The article indicates different paths to improve the understanding of behavioral variance related to the intention to leave the organization.
