Exploring the factors influencing Retirement Planning knowledge sharing behavior among Nigerian Workers

Sani Dauda, Habibah Tolos, Yusnidah Ibrahim

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to assess the factors influencing retirement planning knowledge sharing behavior among Nigerian workers. A structural equation modeling method was employed to identify the variables that significantly affect retirement planning knowledge sharing behavior. Structured questionnaires were used in the collection of data from the respondents who are predominately workers from Nigerian public and private sectors. Out of 600 questionnaires shared, only 343 were used for the study. The major findings of the study indicate that attitude towards retirement planning and subjective norm significantly influence retirement planning knowledge sharing behavior. While perceived control over retirement planning has no significant effect on retirement planning knowledge sharing behavior.
