Abstract

Developing and retaining talented workers is increasingly challenging. Consequently, understanding the factors that lead to employee retention is vital for organizations. The current study examines the impact of organizational contextual factors on career-related perceptions, as explained by employee perceptions of resources (means-efficacy). Archival data was collected from 1,252 city government employees in Tennessee via an online survey. The results support the idea that organizational factors are important for career perceptions in part because they lead to positive employee beliefs about the resources available to them to do their job.
