Predicting employees' decisions to retire
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn a study of the likely causes of retirement decisions, 197 older employees of a state government and their spouses were surveyed a few months before and again a few months after the employees' retirement. Data also were collected from the employees' personnel records. Holding finances, gender, and health constant, (1) some work characteristics conceptualized as potentially pushing older employees away from work and toward retirement and (2) some personal and expected retirement characteristics conceptualized as potentially pulling them toward retirement were examined for their ability to predict employees’ expected ages of retirement.
