CESARIO, Francisco Santos  y  FEIJAO, Ana Margarida Palma. Perceptions of employability impact on a job insecurity context. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.1, pp. 89-103. ISSN 1984-6657.

In the current European context of deep crisis in labor markets, with unemployment rates reaching very high values, Employability may be an alternative to Job Security for employees. Employability emerges as a fundamental requirement both for organizations that need to compete in a changing environment and individuals who aspire to succeed in their careers. This study aims to provide empirical evidence about the impact of Employability perceptions on staff Turnover Intentions and how perceptions of Employability may be relevant in times of high Job Insecurity. The results were based on a sample of 150 individuals, working in different organizations in the Lisbon area. Results indicated a negative relationship between Employability perceptions and Job Insecurity, and a positive relationship between Job Insecurity and Turnover Intentions. It is concluded that an organizational culture that promotes Employability perceptions does not have a direct impact on employee Turnover Intentions. However, it may mitigate some negative effects of Job Insecurity.

Palabras clave : Employability; turnover intentions; job insecurity.
