The study examines when and how does social capital drives employee turnover intention from the perspectives of social capital theory, relational leadership theory, and the theory of reasoned action.
Survey data from 153 employees from both public and private legal firms in Ghana was tested using OLS regression in SPSS.
Results indicate that social capital positively drives employee satisfaction, while relational leadership was found not to moderate the linkage between social capital and employee satisfaction. Interestingly, employee satisfaction is found to fully mediate the relationship between social capital and employee turnover intention.
