Shore, Lynn M.; Tetrick, Lois E.; Shore, Ted H.; Barksdale, Kevin
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v57 n3 p428-44 Dec 2000
Becker's side bet theory (remaining in a job because of perceived costs of leaving) was tested using data from 327 working business students. Three factors were most consistent with the theory: bureaucratic organization, nonwork-related concerns, and adjustment to social position. Attachment to the organization was significantly linked to tangible losses of leaving. (Contains 37 references.) (SK)
