The reduction of employees due to financial savings, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring , changing work practices, and outsourcing positions frequently occurs as organisations seek to remain competitive. Consequently, job insecurity is a major work-related stressor, which affects a growing number of workers. Exposure to job insecurity has been linked to a number of negative health outcomes, particularly mental health. The article begins with defining job insecurity. Followed by, a review of the research examining the association between job insecurity and various health outcomes. In addition, a reflective discussion will be provided on some practical approaches on how to better manage the issue of job insecurity from an organisational perspective.
