The aim of this special issue is to further develop the conceptual foundation and to empirically examine the concept of sustainable careers. Sustainable careers are comprised of work experiences across one’s lifespan that also intersect multiple life domains--work, social, and family. Individual agency is foundational to sustainable careers as it motivates individual’s behavior and provides meaning (Van der Heijden & De Vos, 2015). Creation of this contemporary notion was spurred by a combination of socioeconomic factors, such as the increased complexity and globalization of business and labor markets, as well as the frequency of change. These factors have put a premium on employee flexibility and accelerated the evolution of careers.
