Abstract


Job Insecurity being the prevailing phenomenon has been
discovered to be connected with psychological disorders such as
anxiety, uncertainty and stress. It has also been evident that job
insecurity perception triggers intention to leave and results in
decreased job satisfaction, organizational commitment and job
performance. This cross-sectional study examined the phenomenon
in the private sector organizations of Pakistan where vital existence
of the perceived job insecurity has been observed. 250 respondents
were selected by stratified sampling technique to gather primary data.
Findings have significantly supported the model developed and job
insecurity has proved to be the contributor of psychological outcome
in term of stress, anxiety and uncertainty. These psychological
outcomes along with job insecurity negatively affect job performance,
organizational commitment, intention to leave and job satisfaction
which does not only impact the mental health of the victims of job
insecurity but ultimately organization’s productivity and future
prospects of growth.
