Attitudes and beliefs toward post-retirement employment: A grounded theory study
by Ogums, Raymond U., D.B.A., University of Phoenix, 2010, 215; 3406676
Abstract (Summary)

The problem investigated is that an increasing number of people in the United States are financially unprepared for retirement, leading to a rise in post-retirement employment. The purpose of the study was to explore attitudes and beliefs toward continued employment and actual employment behavior among a set of retirees who have chosen to continue working after reaching retirement age. The grounded theory study design was applied in the efforts to systematically and qualitatively generate a theory that explains, at a broad conceptual level, the reasons older workers have chosen to continue working after reaching retirement age. Data gathered from 25 workers age 65 and older were analyzed. The analysis revealed five work motivators, five inhibitors of saving, six methods of saving, four lifestyle accommodations, and four work attitudes. Implications arising out of the research analysis were presented, and recommendations were offered for leaders or policy makers, and for further research.
