This study examines, at the organizational level, the congruency between job demands and resources and their effects on staff turnover within the English healthcare sector. Polynomial regression analyses conducted on 164 acute hospitals trusts found support for the predictions that organizations with congruent levels of resources and demands would have relatively low staff turnover whereas those with incongruent levels would have relatively high staff turnover. Overall the study indicates that individual job design should be considered within a broader organizational design perspective.
