Survey forms were used as data collection tool. Malatya province was chosen for the field study and survey forms were distributed to employees who work in the Turkish State Railways. In the application phase, firstly reliability, normality and factor analysis were performed and then the structural equation model was established. As a result of the research, technostress influenced presenteeism behavior for techno – overload, techno – complexity and techno – job insecurity dimensions; technostress affects the perception of transformational leadership for techno – complexity, techno – job insecurity and techno – uncertainty dimensions, transformational leadership affects presenteeism behavior and intention to quit, and transformational leadership plays a mediating role in the relationship between technostress and presenteeism.
