Career Plateuning and Work Attitudes: Moderating Effects of Mentoring with Nigerian Employees


Author(s): Samuel O. SALAMI

This study examined the relation of career plateauing to job satisfaction, to organizational commitment, and turnover intentions and the moderating effects of mentoring on the relationships between career plateauing and the three dependent variables. Data were collected from 280 government employees in Nigeria who were more than 30 years old and came from a wide variety of organizations. Results of this study showed that career plateauing was negatively correlated with job satisfaction and organizational commitment and positively correlated with turnover intentions. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses indicated that mentoring played significant moderating role on the relationships between career plateauing and job satisfaction and turnover intentions. Based on the findings, the implications, limitations of this study and direction for future research were discussed.
