Symposium on Job Insecurity 2 - Explaining the outcomes of job insecurity

Main Abstract Content: Evidence suggests that job insecurity is detrimental for health and well-being. This leads to the question: what exactly explains this association? In the recent past, several theoretical explanations for the job insecurity-outcomes relationships have been proposed and tested empirically. This second symposium on job insecurity ads to this growing research line by presenting 6 papers in which the association between job insecurity and specific outcomes are mediated by a variety of variables, such as social identity, occupational self-efficacy, basic need satisfaction and fairness, among others. The symposium consists of the following 6 oral presentations:
1) Eva Selenko & Hans De Witte. A threat to job security - a threat to the self? Exploring the relationship between job insecurity and performance, health and political outcomes from a social identity perspective
2) Marianna Giunchi, Federica Emanuel and Chiara Ghislieri. Perceived job insecurity and use of technology for work-related reasons during leisure-time: Consequences on workers' well-being.
3) Jasmina Tomas, Darja Maslić Seršić, and Hans De Witte. How can we attenuate job insecurity? Examining the effects of psychological climate
4) Ieva Urbanaviciute, Jurgita Lazauskaite-Zabielske, Tinne Vander Elst, & Hans De Witte. Why and when does qualitative job insecurity relate to turnover intentions? Testing the role of basic need satisfaction and sectoral differences
5) Bert Schreurs and Désirée Schumacher. Fairness and Exhaustion as Explanatory Mechanisms in the Relationship between Job insecurity and Employee Outcomes: A Two-Wave Study
6) Jessie Koen and Sharon K. Parker. Different workers, different insecurities:how proactive behavior can reduce job- and employment insecurity
