This study examines the mediating role of work engagement, and the moderating role of experience with the current organization, in the relationship between psychological capital and intention to turnover. The questionnaires was sent to a sample consist of 217 employees working in diverse industries in service sector. The results from Structural Equation Modeling indicate support for the mediating role of work enggagement, but not the moderating role of work experience. This suggests that psychological capital is a distant precursor of intention to turnover and affects it indirectly through work engagement. Practical implications and directions for future research have been discussed in detail..

Kajian ini menyiasat peranan keterlibatan kerja sebagai pengantara, dan peranan pengalaman bekerja dengan majikan semasa sebagai penyederhana dalam hubungan antara modal sosial dan niat lantikhenti. Soalselidik diedarkan kepada 217 pekerja dari pelbagai industri dalam sektor perkhidmatan. Dapatan daripada Structural Equation Modeling menunjukkan sokongan terhadap peranan keterlibatan kerja sebagai pembolehubah pengantara, tetapi tidak kepada peranan pengalaman kerja sebagai penyederhana. Dapatan ini mencadangkan modal sosial sebagai peramal langsung niat lantikhenti, dan peramal tidak langsung menerusi keterlibatan kerja.
