THE MEDIATING EFFECT OF ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT BETWEEN MOBBING AND TURNOVER INTENTION: AN APPLICATION ON PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS TEACHERS

Sevim Güllü, Bekir S. Yildiz, Rabia Kaya

Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine the mediating effect of organizational commitment between mobbing and turnover intention, on physical education and sports teachers. The study included 117 physical education and sports teachers. As the measurement tool, the mobbing scale developed by Yildiz (2019), the organizational commitment scale developed by Allen and Meyer (1990), and the turnover intention scale developed by Landau and Hammer (1986) were used. As a result of the analysis, while mobbing affects organizational commitment significantly and negatively, it has affected turnover intention significantly and positively. It was also observed that organizational commitment has a partial mediating effect between mobbing and turnover intention.
