Abstract: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the factors influencing work exhaustion and its mediating role on turnover intentions in the context of manufacturing and services sector of Pakistan. The study is based on extensive review of literature and comprehensive statistical analysis (correlation, regression and mediation analysis). The results of this study support the view that work family conflict and perceived work overload are the major contributors of work exhaustion, fairness of reward is also important in the context of manufacturing concerns. The work exhaustion perfectly mediates between perceived work overload, work family conflict and turnover intentions. The paper demonstrates the importance of understanding on the job stressors for organizations while evaluating the role of work exhaustion on employee turnover intentions. The implications and future research direction are discussed.
