Abstract: This study investigates labor turnover among IT professionals at the Institute of Accountancy Arusha (IAA) in Tanzania, aiming to understand the organizational and environmental challenges influencing this phenomenon. Descriptive research design was used, and the study employed a mixed research approach. The population comprised 121 staff members selected using simple random technique. Data was collected through questionnaires and documentary review, and analysed using descriptive statistics aided by SPSS version 26. The study reveals significant insights into both organizational and environmental factors influencing turnover. The organizational challenges are characterized by a commendable supportive culture at IAA, yet areas for improvement are identified in terms of career advancement opportunities and recognition systems. On the environmental front, the study brings to light the substantial impact of external job opportunities and government policies on IT professionals' turnover. In light of these findings, the study recommends strategic interventions to fortify career growth prospects, enhance recognition mechanisms, and address economic conditions and governmental policies, all aimed at fostering the retention of IT professionals at IAA and thereby contributing to the broader technological advancement in Tanzania.
