The past few years have been the most threatening period for enterprises that use, manage, or deal in IT. The source of the tumult has been the demand, supply, recruitment, and, especially, retention of IT professionals. Recent literature reveals that a heavy investment in the implementation of HR practices may contribute to organizational success, specifically by reducing the turnover of IT professionals. As of today, very few empirical studies have rigorously examined the influence of relevant HR practices on turnover intentions of IT people. This study offers to fill that gap by testing an integrated model of turnover intentions that addresses the unique nature of the IT profession.
