Abstract

Purpose

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of person–environment (P–E) fit, specifically person–organization (P–O) fit, on retirement intentions through a serial mediation mechanism mobilizing person–job (P–J) fit and affective organizational commitment as mediators.

Design/methodology/approach

The relationships were examined using the Hayes (2013) serial mediation model. A time-lag approach was adopted, with data collected from managers aged 50 and over working in the French banking sector (N = 204).

Findings

The empirical results show that the P–O fit is both directly and indirectly related to retirement intentions through P–J fit and affective organizational commitment. Nevertheless, the study’s findings show the explanatory power of the authors’ antecedents to predict the two types of retirement considered in this study.

Originality/value

By considering retirement in its plurality this study extends prior research models by examining the mechanisms through which P–O fit influences different retirement intentions.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between different categories of person–environment (P–E) fit and two types of retirement intentions (i.e. full retirement and bridge employment).

Design/methodology/approach

Data were collected from a convenience sample of 357 executives aged 50 and over, employed in French private sector companies. Hypotheses were tested using structural equation modeling.

Findings

Perceptions of value congruence at vocational level and needs and supplies fit at organizational and job levels were positively related to the intention to hold bridge employment after retirement. The fit between older worker’s abilities and job demands was positively related to the two types of retirement intentions.

Originality/value

The complexity of retirement transition is taken into account with the introduction of two types of retirement intentions. P–E fit is shown to be an antecedent of career intentions after retirement.
