The aim of the study was to explore the way in which people from various gender, age, ethnic, marital and job level groups differ in terms of their psychological career resources (as measured by the Psychological Career Resources Inventory) and organisational commitment (as measured by the Organisational Commitment Scale). Participants comprising a convenience sample of 358 employed adults at both managerial and staff levels in the field of economic and management services participated in the study. The results of non-parametric tests indicated that there were significant differences between the various sociodemographic groups in terms of the measured variables. The results contribute new knowledge that can be used to inform career development practices directed to retaining valuable staff (especially those from historically disadvantaged groups) in the South African work context.
