The physical and mental health of employees is an important and, at the same time, somewhat neglected topic in organizations of the present age. It seems that managers of organizations can, by directing their leadership style towards this, effect on shifting and leaving employees. The new issue addressed in leadership discussions is the concept of health- promoting leadership. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between health- promoting leadership and employee intent to stay. This research is applied and in terms of data collection, descriptive and correlation type, and is specifically based on path analysis. The statistical population of this research includes all staff of the provincial headquarters of South Khorasan Electric Power Distribution Company, which was ranked 90 personnel according to the company's internal statistics. Sampling was done by simple random sampling. Morgan sampling table was used to estimate the sample size. The data collection tool is a questionnaire. For this purpose, a questionnaire used by Jimenez et al. (2016) was used to measure the health promoting leadership variable, and Hunt, Osborn and Martin (1981) questionnaires were used to measure the intention to stay. The results of the research hypothesis test indicate that the main hypothesis of the research on the impact of health- promoting leadership on worker's intention to stay was confirmed. Among the seven components of health- promoting leadership, only how employees control effected on their intention to stay and the impact of other health -promoting leadership components on employees’ intention to stay was not meaningful.
