A Systematic Review on Information Technology Personnel’s Turnover

Amir Hossein Ghapanchi, Ahmad Reza Ghapanchi, Amir Talaei-Khoei, and Babak Abedin

Abstract—This paper employs a systematic review approach to yield an insight into existing studies on the turnover of Information Systems (IS) / Information Technology (IT) personnel. Our systematic review of 72 studies from 1980 to 2009 makes implications about the background and trend of research on IS/IT turnover as well as the theories used in the literature. Based on the results of our review, we propose that the topic of IS/IT turnover has been paid a great deal of attention in recent years. After 1998 especially, there has been significant growth in the number of academic papers on the topic. Business, IS and Management discipline areas respectively have published the highest number of papers in the area. Additionally, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Dual Factor Theory are two most frequently used theories in IS/IT turnover literature.

Index Terms—Intention to leave, intention to stay, IS/IT turnover, systematic review.
