In the highly competitive environment of the business world, organizations implement human resource policies and practices to increase the motivation and performance of employees. Efforts to keep employee turnover at minimum levels are directly proportional to employee satisfaction and their willingness to stay in the organization. Employees’ dissatisfaction, leaders’ attitudes and behaviours, human resources policies determine the life of the organizations. The increase in the employment turnover rate can decrease the performance of the organization, bring additional costs and cause employee trainings to be ineffective. In particular, the qualified employees can easily leave the organization if they do not like the management approach leads to the formation of different management understandings and perspectives. The leadership style of the managers and the human resources policies can shape the future of the organizations.  Therefore, it is important to conduct studies in this field to help the senior managers to make decisions and demonstrate their leadership roles. The sample of this study consists of 498 white-collar employees working in the private and public sector. The findings were subjected to factor and reliability analyses by using IBM SPSS 23 program. The hypotheses were tested by regression analysis and the results were evaluated and presented accordingly.

In the success of institutions, the peace and quality of the business life of human resources play an important role. The organizational load on employees can affect both individual and organizational stress, their turnover intention, and emotional commitment. Therefore, institutional stress and commitment have become the subject of many studies. In this study, we investigate the effects of responsibility load and workload on work stress, emotional commitment, and turnover intention, using a sample that consists of academics employed in state universities in Turkey. Data analyzed in this study were collected via questionnaires from the academics (n = 1043). The results indicated that workload and responsibility load affect work stress; work load and responsibility load affect emotional commitment; and work load affects turnover intention, while responsibility load has no effect on it.
