Examining a Proposed Job Retention Model for Adult Workers with Mental Retardation
Fornes, Sandra L.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This research provides an analysis of factors predicting job retention (JR), job satisfaction (JS), and job performance (JP) of workers with mental retardation (MR). The findings highlight self-determination as a critical skill in influencing three important employee's outcomes, JR, JS, and JP. The intent of the study was to develop job retention strategies that could offer rehabilitation and HR professionals a useful structure for understanding and implementing job retention interventions for people with MR.
