The aim of existing study is to make a joint investigation of the mediating role of (a) Job involvement in link ing flexible work time with turnover intentions and (b) the moderating role of supervisor support in influencing the mediation. Moderated mediation method of Baron and Kenny (1986) as well as Preacher and Hayes’ (2007) is being used. 257 complete useable r esponses from four different sectors (51% effective response rate) were available for analysis after removing incomplete questionnaires. Results showed that Job involvement mediated the relationships for flexible work time with turnover intentions. Moderat ed mediation analyses further revealed that Job involvement mediated the relationship for flexible work time and turnover intentions more effectively who are getting supervisor support. Results underscore the importance of accounting for presence of relati onal context when examining the relationships between situational context like flexible work time, job involvement and turnover intentions. The findings show that flexible work time would enhance the employee’s job involvement, who is receiving high level of supervisor support.

The results provide useful insights for managers and consultants, especially HR professionals involved in for providing more facilitation to the employees in cha llenging work environment through flexible work time.
