Abstract

This research examined the direct influence of individual career concerns on both career and employer change intention, and the buffering influence of organisational commitment on an individual acting on these career concerns based on the AMO model of behavioural change intention. Survey data, collected from 341 employees across industry sectors in Australia, showed that exploration concerns were positively related to both employer and career change intentions; however, this impact of exploration concerns on career change intention was buffered by affective commitment and strengthened by normative commitment. Establishment concerns were negatively related to career change intention, impacts of establishment concerns were also buffered by level of affective commitment. Results emphasise the distinct nature of employer and career change and emphasise the importance of future research examining the interplay of factors that impact on boundary crossing behaviour.
