    Employees’ commitment is very important for an organization. Once the employees’ commitments reduce, the organization could face the difficulty in retaining the employees. The purpose of this study is to examine whether there is significant relationship between organizational commitment and turnover intention. The total size of the sample is 278 respondents from top level management to low level employees in G hotel, Gurney hotel, and Evergreen Laurel hotel, Penang, Malaysia. By using a correlation analysis, it is found that a relationship between organizational commitment and turnover intention is ranked high with negative correlation. Its mean perceived organizational commitment will give impact on turnover intention. Thus, when organizational commitment is high, turnover intention will be low and if organizational commitment is low, turnover intention will be high. This result is support by past researchers.
