Abstract

The main objective of this study is to test the mediating
effect of perceived internal employability on the relationship
between organisational practices of competences
development and affective commitment, and also to test the
moderating effect of different generations in this mediation.
The sample has 302 participants, who are employees in
several organisations based in Portuguese territory. We
verified the mediating effect of the employability perception
in the relationship between organisational practices of
competences development (individualised support and
functional rotation) and affective commitment. Regarding the
moderating effect of the generations, this effect was verified
in the relationship between the organisational competences
development practices and the affective commitment in the
liaison between the organisational practices of competences
development and the perception of internal employability
and in the connection between the perception of internal
employability and affective commitment.
