A Mixed-Methods Analysis of Embeddedness and Affiliation in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve
MetadataShow full item record
Despite years of research, much remains unknown about the drivers of retention and turnover in specific contexts and, with very few exceptions, scholars have not focused on the Reserves. This study contributes to an understanding of the drivers of retention and turnover in specific contexts by exploring what drives affiliation (retention) and turnover in the USMC Reserves. This study utilizes an exploratory sequential mixed-methods design, analyzing qualitative interview data and quantitative survey data to identify important drivers of affiliation among USMC Reservists and develop a context-specific predictive model, which is then tested. Results support the model and provide an underlying logic consistent with the embeddedness construct. Together, the qualitative and quantitative phases of this study determine primary drivers of affiliation and turnover among USMC Reservists and extend understanding and conceptualization of embeddedness to the context of the USMCR.
