Abstract: The present study intends to study the relationship between employee engagement and turnover intentions of managers. It further attempts to study the moderating impact of resilience and organisation identification on employee engagement and turnover intentions relationship. The study consisted of 275 middle level managers belonging to public and private sector organisations of Delhi/NCR region. Statistical tools like descriptive statistics, correlation and regression were used to test the hypothesised model. A negative and significant association was found between employee engagement and turnover intentions. Resilience and organisation identification significantly moderated the employee engagement and turnover intentions relationship. It is high time for the management to realise the importance of the pillars of the organisations and give them the culture that keeps them more engaged and thereby, reducing the chance of turnover intentions.

Keywords: employee engagement; resilience; turnover intentions; organisational identification; Indian managers.
