Career Attitude of Young Labor-Market Entrants Towards Family Business in Slovakia


  • Ildikó Marosi

    () (Óbuda University)


Several factors influence the carrier motivation of young labor-market entrants. It is a fact, proven by various researchers, that learning, and especially family socialization, has a strong effect on carrier motivation. The other relevant field of socialization in case of young labor-market entrants is their first employment, which shapes their conviction, beliefs and attitude towards work along with their work morale. For young people within family enterprises these two areas of socialization are connected and often intermingled. The young are raised into the family. In the beginning of 2014 148 Slovakian young adolescents participated in a research on attitudes towards family businesses, their role within their family’s business venture, their motivation to learn, and their convictions and opinions on their perceived opportunity of taking over the management of the company. According to the results of the research, the perceived opportunity of taking over the family enterprise, and the attitude towards learning and the content of their tertiary education studies shows correlation. On the other hand, those who do not have a meticulous vision of their future, or do not have it at all, are uncertain about the usefulness and applicability of what they are taught at the university.
