MAYNEZ GUADERRAMA, Aurora  and  CAVAZOS ARROYO, Judith. To stay or to leave?: Analysis of discriminant variables in a non-profit organization in Mexico. Nova scientia [online]. 2015, vol.7, n.13, pp.470-494. ISSN 2007-0705.

In the recent past, Mexican non-profit organizations have seen an increase in size and importance; nevertheless, research efforts in them are scarce. The retention of their human talent is mainly linked with intrinsic objectives; consequently, it is relevant to analyze diverse variables with the potential to influence the intention of its collaborators to remain employed. Through a non-experimental, explanatory and transversal design, all collaborators in a Monterrey MX humanitarian institution were surveyed. Results evidence that the most relevant discriminating variable was the affective commitment, followed by career satisfaction, age and tenure; the self-efficacy belief was not significant for discrimination. Results are discussed and the relevance of appropriate management of human capital is emphasized, especially in affective commitment's aspects.

Keywords : career satisfaction; affective commitment; self-efficacy belief; intention to remain; non-profit organizations.
