Career-Related Variables and Planned Retirement Age: An Extension of Beehr's Model
Format of Original
Journal of Vocational Behavior
The relationships among three career-related variables, career commitment, career growth opportunity, and occupational goal attainment, and planned retirement age were examined separately and relative to personal and work-related predictors of retirement using a sample of 172 working adults age 45 years and older. Hierarchical regression analysis indicated that career commitment and occupational goal attainment accounted for a significant portion of variance in planned retirement age after the influence of the personal and work-related variables was held constant. A two-way interaction between career commitment and occupational goal attainment was not supported, nor was a two-way interaction between career commitment and career growth opportunity. Further, age did not moderate the relationships between either job satisfaction or career commitment and planned retirement age.
