The aim: The relationship between human resource management (HRM) practices and employees’ intention to leave the organization has been gaining increased attention among researchers and human resource practitioners. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between perceived human resources management practices (HRM), intention to leave of health professionals and organizational citizenship behaviour in healthcare institutions in Albania.
Methods: Adopting a quantitative method strategy using cross-sectional quantitative survey (N=100) we will examine the linkage between the human resources practices (performance appraisal, training and development, participation, autonomy and job design) with organizational citizenship behaviour (OCB) and intention to leave. The data was collected with self-administer questionnaires from healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, administrative staff, health academic staff etc.) working in health care institutions in capital city of Tirana.
Results: Hypotheses will be tested through regression analysis to investigate and understanding the correlation between HRM component and intention to leave and how OCB affect this relationship.
Conclusions: In addition, will be discussed the implication, limitation and future research directions in this topic. Using this sample this study tries to answer the questions of how and why OCB mediate the relationship with intention to leave of health workers in healthcare institutions.
