dc.description.abstract The perception of job security varies in degree across individuals. For a variety of reasons, some individuals perceive their jobs to be more secure than others. Perception of job security has been shown to be related to job satisfaction and organizational commitment. This relationship was investigated. Subjects were 97 employees from 3 organizations located in the Mid-West. Subjects completed the Minnesota satisfaction Questionnaire, the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire, and the Job Security Scale. A 3 X 3 Analysis of Variance, job satisfaction (low, medium, high) by organizational commitment (low, medium, high), was used to understand the relationship of these variables to perception of job security. The analysis indicated the main effect for organizational commitment was significant while the main effect for job satisfaction and the interaction between the two effects failed to reach significance. There was a positive linear relationship between perception of job security and organizational commitment. Employees were likely to have high job satisfaction if organizational commitment was high. Implications are discussed. en_US
