This study investigated the predictability of educational qualifications, age, achievement, motivation, career salience and problem solving ability on attitudes toward multiple-role planning (ATMRP) among employed women in Southwestern Nigeria. The participants were 254 employed women randomly selected from five state capitals in the southwestern Nigeria. The women were administered measures of problem-solving ability, attitude toward multiple-role planning, achievement motivation and work-role salience scale. The data collected were analysed using hierarchical multiple regression analysis. The findings indicated that achievement motivation was the best predictor of ATMRP followed by career salience, problem-solving ability and age in that order. Educational qualifications was the least predictor of ATMRP among the employed women. The results indicate the need for counselling psychologists to design interventions that consider the personal and psychological factors in order to help the women plan for multiple roles.
