Employee turnover is one of the major concerns of managers in today's organizations. Work exhaustion and burnout have been named among the causes that explain intention to quit and turnover. IT organizations are facing high levels of work exhaustion and burnout and consequently turnover is one of the problems that can be derived from this situation. Extant literature proposes a set of studies that focus on the determinants of turnover and on turnover intention among IT professionals. Despite this recent works there are incomplete conclusions on turnover antecedents among IT professionals. This research-in progress work wants to shed some light on the mediating variables that can explain turnover intention among IT professionals. Since different variables have been introduced on the study of turnover, cross-cultural research on turnover intention among IT professionals is scarce and inconclusive. This work introduces individual cultural attributes as mediating variables on previous IT professionals' turnover intention models. The main goal of this research study will be to report on the causal effects of cultural attributes on IT professionals' turnover intention. The authors are ready to design the questionnaire and they expect to be able to present the outcomes of the qualitative validation phase and to discuss the preliminary results in the conference.
