Abstract [en]

Research has produced compelling evidence that quantitative job insecurity is associated with negative consequences, and also suggests that short-term attitudinal reactions mediate the relationship between job insecurity and long-term reactions. The aim of this study was to investigate if both quantitative and qualitative job insecurity are related to short-term (job satisfaction and trust in management) and long-term (turnover intention and psychological distress) reactions, and if the short-term reactions mediate the relationships between the two dimensions of job insecurity and the long-term reactions. Survey data from 549 Swedish white-collar workers show that both types of job insecurity were related to all outcomes. While trust in management only had a small mediating effect in the relationship between quantitative job insecurity and turnover intention, job satisfaction was an important mediator between both types of job insecurity and long-term outcomes.
