SILVA, Adão Ademir da et al. Adaptation and psychometric properties of the turnover intention and job search scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.4, pp. 462-472. ISSN 1677-0471.

The study tested the psychometric properties of the Turnover Intention and Job Search Scale. The scale innovates by combining measures of Withdrawal Cognitions and Job Search Behavior to evaluate turnover intention and behavior. Participants were 70 men and 131 women with average age of 33.7 years, from three cities in southern Brazil. Data was collected using an online survey, and analyzed using the Software R. The Graphical Analysis and the Confirmatory Factorial Analysis indicated four factors presenting the following fit measures: χ2 = 66.41, CFI = 0.998, TLI = 0.997, RMSEA = 0.08. The results provide evidence for internal and content validity, besides convergent validity with an already established measure of turnover intention. Findings also indicate the potential of the scale for the analysis of turnover intention and decision making on human capital management in organizations.
