Voluntary Turnover of Information Systems Professionals: A Cross-Cultural Investigation
AbstractThis investigation examines the motivating factors associated with voluntary turnover decisions of information systems (IS) professionals within the context of two different culturesâ€”Singapore and New Zealand. The narrative inquiry approach was employed to interview 35 IS professionals. Ninety-seven turnover episodes were identified, including 42 in Singapore and 55 in New Zealand. The findings indicate that there exist universal turnover factors which are culturally independent. However, there are also factors that are culturally sensitive, which should be considered by managers when dealing with an international workforce.
