Job satisfaction is increasingly crucial in organizational psychology and organizational behavior. Job satisfaction has been studied because it concerns the physical and mental contended state of employees not only from the organizational psychology point of view, but as well as from organizational management and human resource management point of view. Nowadays organizations put increasingly high efforts to retain and increase employees’ job satisfaction, not only to advance productivity and profitability of the organization, but also to retain valuable skilled employees from job withdrawal (Cranny, Smith & Stone, 1992). Meaningfulness at work has a notion of having a purpose. Meaningfulness often gets associated with happiness, while the two have distinct meanings. Meaningfulness of employees at work has not yet been studied as thoroughly as motivation. Where motivation look at both intrinsic and extrinsic values, meaningfulness refers to the deeper intrinsic value that employees attach to their jobs.

Therefor, It is important for human resources and management to better understand how to increase the retention of productive employees through the analysis of the drivers of organizational withdrawal decisions. This research will look at meaningfulness and job satisfaction and the related impact it has on employee withdrawal decision process.
