Explanatory research design is used as the main research paradigm to discover reality. It has used a purposive sampling technique where a total of 404 were interviewed with a structural questionnaire; where data collection is done by using the KOBO Toolbox. The data was evaluated by using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Structural Equation Modeling was used to analyze the relationships between variables using Smart PLS software. The finding reveals that positive supervisor relationships, favorable work conditions, and recognition significantly impact job satisfaction. Job satisfaction, in turn, plays a crucial role in shaping turnover intentions. Identified challenges in salary, recognition, work-life balance, and career growth call for solutions emphasizing employee well-being, recognition, growth opportunities, flexible hours, open communication, and monotony relief.
