Job embeddedness is recognized as important factor in turnover literature in retaining valuable talented employees and develop a sustainable edge of the organization. Job embeddedness is taking centre stage in analysing employees’ turnover intention because an individual’s decision to leave an organization is highly shaped by the work environment in which the employee is embedded, in addition to the job per se. Using a sample of 416 employees belonging to four renowned organizations of Indian Airlines Industry namely Indigo, Spice Jet, Go Air and Jet Airways, in this study, an attempt has been made to find out the relationship between job embeddedness and turnover intention of Non-technical employees in Airlines Industry in India. Through the results, an important relationship between these two variables can be seen substantiating available literature. However, this study disaggregates job embeddedness into its components Link, Fit and Sacrifice, to assess their impact on turnover intention, separately. In the results, it is revealed that the participants having lower job embeddedness tend to have a higher turnover intention and it is found that Link and Fit have been significant influencers on turnover intention.
