The purpose of this study is to make available to researchers and practitioners a new instrument to measure turnover intentions based on a compensatory Multidimensional Item Response Theory (MIRT) model. Since extrinsic and intrinsic aspects are measured, item parameters and individual scores are provided for each dimension. The Multidimensional Turnover Intentions Scale (MTIS) was administered to 146 workers of multinational automotive company. Multidimensional Graded Response Model was chosen for item calibration and EAP estimation technique was deployed for producing the individual’s factor scores. The two-dimensional structure was confirmed, with all the thirty items properly measuring turnover intentions. Items more likely to predict turnover intentions and an interpretation about individual scoring under a MIRT approach are presented. The MTIS can help companies to work beyond their turnover rates, mainly on the analyses of their talented employees with a stronger intention to leave the organization, and then create new strategies aimed at worker retention.
