Examining occupational self-efficacy, work locus of control and communication as moderators of the job insecurity--job performance relationship


König, C J; Debus, M E; Haeusler, S; Lendenmann, N; Kleinmann, Martin (2010). Examining occupational self-efficacy, work locus of control and communication as moderators of the job insecurity--job performance relationship. Economic and Industrial Democracy, 31(2):231-247.

Abstract

Employees’ performance has been shown to be moderately hampered by job insecurity. Based on conservation of resources theory, the study examines whether three possible resources (occupational self-efficacy, work locus of control and communication) moderate the negative job insecurity—performance relationship. Analyses of a large Swiss dataset reveal two significant interaction effects: the higher the job insecurity, the less influence work locus of control and perceived communication exert on the job insecurity—performance relationship. This suggests that work locus of control and perceived communication may be resources that can only act beneficially in a situation of low job insecurity.
