AIS Transactions on Replication Research


As evidence suggests that exhaustion is particularly pronounced in Millennials, we investigate if generational differences affect the drivers of information systems (IS) career turn-away intention (TAI). An indication of such differences would be of importance toward retaining professionals in the IS workforce as Millennials will soon become the largest generation in the U.S. workforce. To elucidate such differences, this paper presents a methodological replication of "Exhaustion from Information System Career Experience: Implications for Turn-Away Intention" by Armstrong, Brooks, and Riemenschneider (2015). While we did not determine significant generational differences, our findings contrast from the original study. Specifically, we found support for the impact of exhaustion from IS career experience on TAI, while an evaluation of resources no longer influences career-level exhaustion.
