BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Career management determines the direction of staff's movement in the organizational hierarchy and directs them to perfection. The Objective of this study was to design a model for career management of Tehran Municipality employees.
METHODS: The research method was Qualitative-Quantitative and the statistical population of the study was 11 experts in the qualitative section and 660 employees of the organization in the quantitative section. The data collection tool was semi-structured interviews in qualitative section and in quantitative part of the questionnaire was researcher-made. Using the Grounded Theory and Theoretical Coding, the initial model was presented and the final model of the research was presented using Delphi technique and obtaining the opinions of experts. Exploratory Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modeling were used to validate the model.
