The Devil Is In The Details: Understanding The Mechanism Behind The Spread of Pre-Quitting Behaviors

Building on the stream of literature that seeks to examine the impact turnover has on the organization, this manuscript addresses tension in the turnover contagion literature regarding the type of impact turnover has on those who stay behind. Specifically, we address calls in the literature for understanding the mechanism through which turnover contagion operates, as well as the boundary conditions to its effects. In a sample of newcomers in a large, public University, we examined cues that newcomers glean from observing their colleagues’ display of Pre-Quitting Behaviors, and how these cues shape newcomers’ propensities to engage in Pre-Quitting behaviors five months later.
