TANEVA, S. and YANKOV, G.P., 2019. Developing a successful aging at work scale. To be presented at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) 2019 34th Annual Conference, Washington, DC, USA, 4-6 April 2019.
Whilst the advantages of sustaining successful aging at work have been acknowledged, no single instrument for measuring this construct has been published yet. We developed and tested a two-dimensional successful aging at work scale, which is rooted conceptually in the most recent theoretical developments. This psychometric instrument can be applied across work settings and groups of workers.
