The United States Air Force (AF) has experienced a downward trend in retention of information systems (IS) workers over the past five years. This research draws on the employee turver model proposed by Mobley et al. (1979) and the work of Schein (1987) to measure the career anchors, job satisfaction, and turver intention of AF IS workers to determine if those whose job type and career anchor match report higher satisfaction and lower turver intention than those with a mismatch. A portion of the AF IS workforce (AFSCs 3C0X1, 3C0X2, and 3C2X1; N = 10,133) was surveyed through an online instrument that returned 2,724 responses. Job security, service, and life-style anchors emerged as dominant. Partial support was found showing that job satisfaction is positively influenced by compatibility between job type and career anchor. Partial support was also found for the proposed link between turver intention and compatibility. The most significant finding was that managerial and technical anchors did t dominate this population. This suggests that AF IS workers do t possess the same career anchors as civilian IS workers and may require different incentives to reduce turver. Further research should be expanded throughout the AF and should explore other factors in addition to job type/career anchor compatibility as contributing factors.
