Description Background: There is limited empirical research on the construct of career agility and the relevance of dual career agility types in the technological-driven workplace.Objective: This study aimed to adopt a person-centred approach in assessing the link between dual career agility types and individuals’ psychological states of career wellbeing and affective commitment.Method: The cross-sectional survey involved a sample of (n = 298) managers (71%) and staff (29%) employed in the human resource and financial services industry. The sample comprised of men (54%), women (46%), including black people (62%) and white people (38%) with a mean age of 38.58 years.Results: The results provided deeper insight into the psychological states of career wellbeing and affective commitment that accounted for the personally-autonomous motives that are embedded in the three dual career agility types.Conclusion: The findings brought a more holistic understanding of the nature of person-centred career agility motives and the psychological states that elucidate these motives. The findings bring new insights that might foster optimal career development and employees’ adaptation to the post-COVID pandemic digital era workplace.
