Managing careers: the interplay of career self-management and organizational career support

Managing careers: the interplay of career self-management and organizational career support

A. de Vos, K. Dewettinck & D. Buyens, Gedrag & Organisatie, volume 20, maart 2007, nr. 1, pp. 21-40

This paper explores the relationship between organizational career management and career self-management and addresses the impact on employee outcomes. Within six large organizations, a sample of 491 employees reported on their career self-management initiatives, on their expectations towards organizational career management support and on their commitment and career success. This was complemented by information from their supervisors on informal and formal career management practices offered to employees to support their career development. Results show that individuals who take more initiatives to manage their own career also expect more career support from their employer. Career self-management and organizational career management are positively related to organizational commitment and number of promotions, while career self-management also relates to subjective feelings of career success. The interaction between career self-management and organizational career management in explaining employee outcomes is discussed.
