This research focuses on investigating the work and non-work dimensions of job
embeddedness to stay intention and its relationship with organizational culture and
commitment in Hong Kong, using a mixed methods approach. A large organization

company to triangulate the relationships among the constructs. Finally, face-to-face

to validate three important factors of cultural practice (fair reward, competence
development and empowerment) which is crucial for talent management.
The positive relationship of stay intention with organizational culture;
organizational commitment; and job embeddedness were investigated using quantitative
research approaches and triangulated with the qualitative research findings. The work
dimension of job embeddedness was more applicable to stay intention. Job
embeddedness was found to mediate the effect between organizational culture and stay
intention, and between organizational commitment and stay intention. Analysis of the
face-to-face and exit interviews identified fair reward, competence development and
empowerment as important factors for talent management.

talent management in the company and would probably help staff recruitment and
