The aim of the present research is to identify and analyse the connection between career motivation of employees and their conflict behavior strategies. Firstly, theoretical analysis of secondary data consisting of scientific literature on the problem was carried out, as a result a gap in modern studies was identified. Secondly, an empirical study was conducted among two Russian organisations using the developed methodology that includes interviews with managers, participant observation and collection of quantitative data using Schein’s «Career anchors» method and Thomas’s Conflict Mode instrument. Finally, statistically significant correlations between the two phenomena were discovered through analysis of the results and hypothesis testing, based on which key conclusions were presented along with a range of practical recommendations for HR specialists and managers of the studied companies.
