Perceived Internal Employability as a Strategy to Reduce Employee Intention to Quit

Resumen

Este estudio analiza el impacto de la empleabilidad interna percibida como un medio para retener empleados poseedores de capital humano valioso para la empresa. Se utilizan las percepciones de los empleados puesto que son estas las que determinan las actitudes y por lo tanto las predisposiciones para actuar, así como los comportamientos individuales adoptados. La satisfacción laboral y el compromiso organizativo se proponen como variables mediadoras de dicha relación, pues se han manifestado como determinantes en la literatura a la hora de explicar el comportamiento de los empleados. 
Como variable dependiente se utiliza la intención de renunciar al trabajo dado que es muy complejo analizar la rotación efectiva de los empleados, la cual depende en gran medida de las oportunidades que ofrece el mercado laboral. El análisis se lleva a cabo a través de ecuaciones estructurales en una muestra de 218 empleados. Los resultados muestran que la empleabilidad interna sí tiene un efecto positivo en una dimensión afectiva combinada del trabajo, así como esta última dimensión impacta negativamente en la intención de los empleados de renunciar a su trabajo.
