Description

This study examines a mediated moderation model to explain the association between job insecurity and employee supportive voice, having affective commitment and emotional exhaustion as mediators, and employability with a buffering role. The sample was composed of 244 employees from distinct organizations. SPSS tool, Process, was used to analyse the data. As predicted, findings showed a significant indirect effect of job insecurity on employees’ supportive voice through affective commitment. On contrary, the association was not supported through emotional exhaustion. No direct relationship between job insecurity and employee supportive voice was observed. Also no mitigating effect from employability was observed on job insecurity. This research contributes to the study of job insecurity and the emotions it arises in the employees towards the organization, by showing two possible perspectives. This paper evidences that supervisors may promote the adequate environment in the organization, to promote positive emotions on the employees and, consequently, effectiveness at the workplace.
