First, those who became engaged in job change goals also reported a decrease in rewards between T1 and T2, whereas participants who became engaged in competence or organizational goals also reported an increase in rewards over time. Second, participants who disengaged from job change goals reported an increase in reward and a reduction in effort–reward imbalance. Finally, a reduction in rewards and an increase in ERI were accompanied by disengagement from job security goals. The study highlights the central role of psychosocial factors, and in particular the reward factor of career opportunities, in goal pursuit. These results can have implications for the occupational well-being of employees. ...
