The interrelationships among job insecurity, locus of control, sense of coherence and organisational commitment of survivors of downsizing.

by Rinkwest, Shani Lucille

Abstract (Summary)
Downsizing is one of the most common organisational reactions to organisational change. The effects of global competition, mergers, and the privatisation of public sector companies, among others, are forcing organisations in South Africa to resort to workforce reduction. The purpose of the present study was to address the lack of research on the impact of downsizing on survivors. Specifically, the study examined the interactive effects of job insecurity, locus of control and sense of coherence on the organisational commitment of survivors.
