The big environment is the market economy; the small background is GDCAT; faced by the changing policy and the developing industry, where the technical staff has a high turnover rate. This study hoped to find ways to help the enterprise reduce the high turnover rate, and keep the core competitiveness, which is human capital. For the current situation of the GDCATV, the researcher put forward the objective. The general objective of this study was to find out the turnover intention of technical personnel in Guangdong Cable TV Networks, Co. Ltd (GDCATV). For the hypotheses of the study, the researcher reviewed the western scholars, overseas scholars and empirical researches about job satisfaction, job characteristics, and work similarity which are related to turnover intention.

However, due to limited manpower, material and time, no comprehensive personal general survey had been conducted. Instead, more than 3600 staff from the 18 regional cable TV network systems within Guangdong Province except Shaoguan, Yangjiang, Jieyang and Maoming was given questionnaire investigation by delivery or email. Sampling was based on the current enterprises statistics, which was further divided into five areas: GuangShen district, Southern Guangdong district, Northern Guangdong district, Eastern Guangdong district and Western Guangdong district.
