Abstract


In order to study the moderating effect of perceived organizational support between optimism and turnover intention, 213 valid questionnaires were used. The empirical results show that optimism can negatively predict low-wage white-collars’ turnover intention; perceived organizational support can moderate the relationship between optimism and turnover intention, which means that a high-level of perceived organizational support could enhance the negative influence between optimism and turnover intention, while a low-level of perceived organizational support could weaken the negative influence. Corresponding suggestions are put forward from two aspects of recruitment and management in order to reduce the turnover intention and turnover rate of low-wage white-collars.

Keywords
