Therefore it is rather important that the managers identify and understand the factors related to the propensity to leave. The general objective of the study is to examine the predictors of hotel staff propensity to leave; and the mediating role of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Specifically it aims to examine the relationship of research variables; and whether job satisfaction and organizational commitment mediate the effect of independent variables on the dependent variable.
