A convenience sample group of 130 employees of Northport (Malaysia) Bhd. were selected over 2272 of total population at year 2009. A self–administered survey instrument was developed to measure and test the employee external environment, occupational stress, job satisfaction, and intent to leave towards organizational commitment. Using SPSS 16.0, two statistical tests were employed to test study hypotheses. First, by measuring correlation, a Pearson correlation coefficient analysis was used to identify the relationships between predictor and criterion variables.
