Abstract: This study investigates the influence of organisation culture (OC) and personal-job fit (PF) on employee engagement (EE) and its resultant impact on turnover intention (TI) in the lower and middle level employees of information technology (IT) sector. This study was undertaken due to the paucity of literature with respect to TI in the public domain, especially related to the IT sector from an emerging market perspective. The results indicate that OC and PF are positively associated with employee engagement (EE) but EE negatively affects TI. This research further demonstrated the mediating role of EE, such that the higher level of OC and higher PF led to high EE and subsequently, resulted in lower TI. The findings of this study offers practical insights to HR professionals' associated with the IT sector, to effectively design engagement and retention strategies. Additionally, it assists HR managers in the IT sector to design long-term strategies by acknowledging the vital role of EE and its key influence on TI.
