ABSTRACT
This study focuses to investigate the influence of stress, anxiety, and organizational assistance on intention to leave by using 113 office managers or general managers of Thai petroleum and chemical business in Thailand as the samples. Mailed questionnaires is used an instrument. The results demonstrated that job stressors, physical work environment, social isolation, and family-work conflict have positively significant influence on stress and anxiety. Stress has positively significant influence on anxiety; and anxiety has positively significant influence on intention to leave. A discovery of organizational assistance as a moderator can restrain both anxiety and intention to leave. Contributions and suggestions are provided for future research.
