The aim of this paper is to examine the moderating role played by three motivating job characteristics (autonomy, feedback, skill variety) in the relationship between burnout and turnover intention in a sample of 161 respondents. Data obtained from questionnaires will be analyzed through the SPSS statistical packet program. The Sobel test is used to measure the significance of moderating effects of motivating job characteristics. The findings revealed that employees who reported that they were more exhausted, more cynical, feel less professional efficacy had more intention to leave their organization. However, the findings also indicate that there is no significant moderation effect relationship between motivating job characteristics and turnover intention. (C) 2014 The Authors.
