Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: str.Other title: Psychological climate predicting job insecurity through occupational self-efficacy [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 5.06 | Job insecurity, Psychological climate, Occupational self-efficacy, Conservation of Resources (COR) theory, Structural equation modelling (SEM) | Job insecurity, Psychological climate, Occupational self-efficacy, Conservation of Resources (COR) theory, Structural equation modelling (SEM) In: Personnel review (2018)Abstract: The purpose of the current study is test the hypothesized mediational model that specifies psychological climate dimensions as antecedents of job insecurity accounting for occupational self-efficacy. Departing from the Conservation of Resources theory, the authors hypothesize that job challenge, role harmony, leader support and co-worker cooperation negatively relate to job insecurity due to its positive correlations with occupational self-efficacy. Data were collected among 329 white-collar employees from ICT sector who worked full-time and minimally six months in the current organization. The hypotheses were tested via structural equation modelling employing the bootstrap method to test the significance of indirect effects. Among four domains of work environment, only job challenge had a significant contribution in explaining job insecurity variance. This relationship was fully mediated by occupational self-efficacy. The cross-sectional research design limits the causality inferences, while the convenience sampling method limits the generalizability of findings. The study results indicate that well- designed (i.e., challenging, autonomous and important) job tasks may be advantageous in organizational interventions aiming to reduce job insecurity due to its potential to strengthen employees’ efficacy beliefs. The study results add to the knowledge on the relative importance of work environmental antecedents of job insecurity, as well as on the prominent role of occupational self efficacy in explaining some of these relationships.
