AN INVESTIGATION OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES EMPLOYEES ATTITUDES TOWARDS RETIREMENT

ABSTRACT
This study was undertaken to investigate the local government employees’ attitude
towards retirement. The specific objectives were: (i) to identify the attitudes of local
government workers towards retirement (ii) to find out whether there is a difference
in attitude towards retirement between female and male employees; and (iii) to find
out whether there is a difference in attitude of employees towards retirement across
age, income, marital status, education, and time to retirement categories. The study
utilized descriptive survey based on 50 employees conveniently sampled out of
Kinondoni Municipal Council’s healthcare employees at Mwananyamala Regional
Referral Hospital. Data analysis was carried out by comparing means of mean scores
on attitudinal statements using independent sample t- test and one way ANOVA.
The results indicate that employees view retirement as a fact of life, an attainment of
self actualization and it is worthwhile if one plans well for it. They are even willing
to offer themselves for seminar and counseling opportunities as a way forward to
learn and prepare for it. Moreover, the study finds significant differences in attitudes
towards retirement across age, time to retirement, level of education and level of
income categories (p< 0.1)
Basing on these findings, it was concluded the overall attitude of local government
authority employees is generally positive, but vary with such socio-demographic
variables.
Basing on the results of this study, there is a need to develop coherent and holistic
policy of pre and post retirement training and counseling for employees. Such
viii
policies will not only improve the overall attitude of workers towards retirement but
also enhance their preparations towards challenges of post retirement life. It is
therefore recommended that the Local Government Authorities should encourage
employees to develop themselves academically as well as to adopt better saving
habits and income generating activities. Pension schemes also need to have better
formulae for pension benefits coupled with robust investment policies so as the
returns may support better benefit payment to employees.
