A Systematic Review Study of Career Plateau

By: Sean Darling  

The overall goal of this systematic review is to synthesis the empirical basis of the career plateau research. This systematic review process has three secondary goals: to present a state-of-the-art of the existing empirical research on career plateau; to provide new insights, analysis and interpretations through secondary analysis of the published data and findings; and to suggest a series of actions that, based on the systematization of empirical findings, help increase the effectiveness of individual and organizational attempts to prevent or mitigate the negative impacts of career plateau. Following a description of the methodology used to conduct the systematic review, key findings from the exploration of research methods and development of a map of empirical studies on career plateau is presented. The study provides greater clarity and new insights related to career plateau.
