Abstract

The current study utilised organisational support theory to consider whether supervisors' intention to leave the organisation could contribute to subordinates' perceived organisational support (POS) and positive mood. Using hierarchical linear modeling, we found that supervisors' turnover intentions were related to subordinates' POS, and subordinate POS mediated the relationship between supervisor turnover intention and positive mood. Supervisors who intend to leave may no longer feel obligated to help the organisation reach its goals. The reduced felt obligation may affect their willingness to provide aid to the subordinates below them, resulting in reduced POS and positive mood of subordinates.
