Abstract

The study was set to explore the extent to which job satisfaction influences labour turnover in LGAs in Tanzania. It used a cross sectional survey research design. Stratified sampling procedure with simple random sampling and purposive sampling were used in sample selection. Data was collected using questionnaire. A closed ended questionnaire was used as a tool for data collection. Descriptive statistical analysis, correlation analysis, factor analysis and multiple regressions analysis included in the analysis of data. Results indicate that, high percentage of job satisfaction and labour turnover in LGAs is explained by financial and non-financial rewards (R2 = .730, P<.01). Financial rewards and non-financial rewards have significant influence on job satisfaction and labour turnover (β =.439, P < .01), (β = .447, P < .01) respectively. When compared, non-financial rewards (β = .447, p < .01) are more influential on labour turnover than financial rewards(β =.439, P <.01).Results also indicate that, context specific factors have significant influence on job satisfaction and labour turnover (β = .365, p < .01).Generally, the results show that job satisfaction have significant relationship with labour turnover in LGAs in Tanzania (R2 = .6496, p < 0.01). The study recommends an increase of financial and non-financial rewards in LGAs for the sake of containing employees. In collaboration with development partners, the government may set priorities and specific strategies for improving employees living and working conditions. Further studies may be conducted on context specific factors as they play a significant role in labour turnover.
