THE EFFECTS OF SELF-ESTEEM AND PERSONAL CONTROL ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JOB INSECURITY AND PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING
Abstract:129 employees of an Australian manufacturer completed measures of job insecurity, self-esteem, personal control and psychological well-being. Using hierarchical regression analysis, it was shown that the personal attributes of self-esteem and personal control moderated the impact of job insecurity on psychological well being, as predicted, with low self-esteem and external control employees being significantly more adversely affected by insecurity than their high self-esteem and internal control counterparts.
