This study extends the theory of job embeddedness by disclosing the link between job embeddedness and employee well-being with a mediating role of career adaptability under the lens conservation of resource theory. This study collected data through two-time lags from 206 subordinates who work in Pakistan's electrical/electronic industry technological sector to avoid self-service bias. The quantitative research method under the deductive approach was applied. The data was analyzed through the SMART-PLS. As hypothesized, regression analyses showed that job embeddedness significantly predicted its subsequent "career adaptability." Also, as hypothesized, job embeddedness was significantly predictive of employee well-being. This study addresses the research gap by providing empirical evidence for a relationship between job embeddedness and employee well-being under a psychological mediating mechanism of career adaptability. Additionally, theoretical and particle implications are discussed under the application of the COR in the unique context of an underdeveloped country.
