Teachers of today spend a big portion of their lives at work. As a result, friendships grow between/among them at work. Previous research has found that workplace friendship serves a range of beneficial roles for both individuals and companies. Increased communication, respect, security, and trust among colleagues are facilitated by workplace friendships. In the education business, these rewarding benefits have significant ramifications for employees’ job-related results. Many academics have looked into the various aspects that influence organisational commitment (OC). Only few studies have looked at the impact of workplace friendship on both organisational commitment and turnover intentions. Thus, the purpose of this research was to look at the direct impact of friendship at workplace on teacher organisational commitment and turnover intentions. A total of 98 teachers from higher education institutions in Mathura participated in the study. The data collected was analysed using regression analysis. This research gives useful insights into how educational institutions might strengthen organisational commitment and lower turnover intentions by developing workplace friendship, by stressing the influence of workplace friendship on organisational commitment and teacher’s turnover intentions.
