Abstract: Abstract This study explored the impact of transformational leadership style on employee turnover intentions in state-owned enterprises in Ghana. The study participants were 300 full-time employees in ten departments. Structural equation modeling analysis revealed that transformational leadership inversely relate to employee turnover intention. All the commitment constructs partially mediate transformational leadership style and employee turnover intentions. However, organizational commitment significantly relates to transformational leadership and employee turnover intentions. Transformational leadership style is the most significant predictor of employee turnover intentions in state-owned enterprises. The study concludes that building confidence and trust among employees would reduce turnover intentions in public sector organizations.
