Job insecurity: Antecedents, consequences and moderators

Magnus Sverke

In recent decades profound changes in the nature of employment relations have occurred across Europe and in other economies the world over. Many workers have been involuntarily regulated to part-time employment, hired on temporary employment contracts, or otherwise displaced in some way. Increased flexibility in the staffing of organizations is becoming a cause of discomfort for many employees who are concerned over their future employment. Job insecurity can be defined as the worry a person feels about the future of her employment situation, and a growing body of research suggests that job insecurity may have detrimental consequences for employee attitudes and well-being.

The seminar summarizes research on job insecurity by focusing on outcomes of job insecurity. It also addresses its predictors and factors that may moderate the effects of job insecurity. Problems of inferring causal effects of insecurity on and its potential outcomes will also be discussed. The seminar is organized in two consecutive sessions, where lecturing will be mixed with discussion and some group exercises.
