BOEHS, Samantha de Toledo Martins; BARDAGI, Marucia Patta  and  SILVA, Narbal. Work, retirement, and life satisfaction in a multinational company. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp. 653-661. ISSN 1984-6657.

With the increase in life expectancy, the concern with the factors that influence retirement life satisfaction becomes important. In the present quantitative study, the relationships between the aspects related to the work role during the career, the type of retirement decision, and life satisfaction in 89 retirees of a multinational company were verified. Although 83% of the sample answered that retirement was voluntary, 64% said that if they could, they would go back to work. The lowest averages of life satisfaction appeared among those who pointed to the financial motive as the main factor for engaging in paid activity in retirement. The results also indicate that the better the perception of the quality of life during the career, the higher the current level of life satisfaction and the desire not to want to leave work at retirement.

Keywords : career; retirement; life satisfaction.
