Abstract:
This paper aims to investigate impact of preferential treatment (Nepotism and favoritism) on job satisfaction and turnover intentions of employees. Using convenient sampling technique, data was collected from 200 academic staff of various private universities through self-administered questionnaire. Correlation and Regression analysis has been employed to analyze hypotheses. Results revealed that there is negative impact of nepotism over job satisfaction and turnover intentions of employees. It has been also concluded that with increase in favoritism, there is upward trend in job satisfaction and employee’s turnover intentions. Preferential treatment is generally accepted in Pakistani society so less variance has been observed in job satisfaction and turnover intentions of employees in presence of preferential treatment.
