Abstract

The phenomenon of teacher attrition, particularly in private universities, has become a matter of growing concern in recent years. At Yunnan College of Business Management, as well as other private institutions, there are several pressing issues related to teacher management that need to be addressed. One of the most critical problems is the high rate of teacher turnover, which has been increasingly evident in recent years. The objectives of this study were: 1) To examine the impact of organizational culture on teacher attrition rate, 2) To examine the influence of leadership style on teacher attrition rate, 3) To examine the contribution of work stress to teacher attrition rate.

This study adopted the quantitative research design, based on the theory of organizational behavior, to systematically investigate the factors affecting the turnover of teachers in private universities, and took Yunnan College of Business Management as the research subject. Data collection was conducted using the designed survey questionnaire, which was distributed electronically to the faculty members. This study distributed 400 questionnaires, accounting for 80% of the total number of faculty and staff. The response rate of the questionnaires received was as high as 87.5%, and the effective rate was 91.4%. This study found that: 1) a positive organizational culture is significantly associated with higher teacher retention, 2) effective leadership style is crucial in increasing teacher retention and 3) high level of work stress negatively impacts teacher retention. This study conclusively demonstrated the critical roles that organizational culture, leadership style, and work stress play in teacher retention within private universities. By fostering a supportive culture, employing effective leadership, and managing work-related stress, educational institutions can significantly enhance their ability to retain faculty. These findings not only reinforce the theoretical underpinnings of organizational behavior in educational settings but also offer practical strategies for improving the working conditions and satisfaction levels of university teachers.

For recommendation, Yunnan College of Business Management should focus on strengthening organizational culture through community-building and recognition programs, enhancing leadership by training in participative and transformational styles, and reducing work stress with fair workload management and supportive wellness initiatives. These measures are expected to improve faculty retention and overall satisfaction.
