Abstract: Employee turnover is a great menace to the organisations that strive to achieve success and remain at top in today's immense competitive environment. Organisations are plagued with high rates of employee turnover across various sectors and Indian higher education sector is no different. Thus, the present study investigated applicability of job embeddedness (JE) model in predicting turnover intentions (TI) of employees in the Indian higher educational sector, by drawing a sample (N = 321) from faculty members working in private universities in India. Results demonstrated that organisational and community job embeddedness significantly predicted turnover intentions of employees, thereby providing the HR managers much needed solution to retain their valued employees. Moderation effect of gender on the above relationship was analysed further and the results depicted that gender significantly moderated the association amid individual dimensions of embeddedness and employees' quit intentions, respectively. Findings along with implications are discussed in the paper.
