III. Attitudes Toward Work

Attitudes Toward Work Changing attitudes toward work help explain the changing demographic profile of the American work force. With a college degree increasingly seen as a necessity for the good life, many young people ages 16 to 24 report they are staying out of the labor force to concentrate full time on their education. At the other end of the work life cycle, older adults are healthier, living longer and more inclined than any time in recent decades to work past the traditional retirement age of 65. A majority of those who do so say they keep working mainly for the intangible rather than the economic rewards, according to the Pew Research Center survey. Global Leadership Forecast 2014.

Self-Efficacy (Bandura – 1977) The theory of self-efficacy, as presented by Bandura (1977a), was outlined as a theoretical framework “in which the concept of self-efficacy is assigned a central role, for analyzing changes achieved in fearful and avoidant behavior” (p. 193).

Self-Efficacy (Bandura – 1977)

The theory was based on the principle assumption that “psychological procedures, whatever their form, serve as a means of creating and strengthening expectations of personal efficacy” (p. 193). The theory distinguishes between expectations of efficacy and response-outcome expectancies. An outcome expectancy is “a person’s estimate that a given behavior will lead to certain outcomes” (p. 193).

An efficacy expectation is “the conviction that one can successfully execute the behavior required to produce the outcomes” (p. 193). Although a person may expect a certain activity to lead to a particular outcome, they may lack the motivation to perform the action, doubting their ability to do so: In contrast, people “who doubt their capabilities” (p. 2): Women_education_workforce.pdf.
