Abstract

Organization restructuring often leads to job insecurity feeling from the employees who will subsequently give reduced affective and normative organizational commitment, reduced organizational citizenship behavior, increased withdrawal cognitions and even develop cynicism towards the organization.

This research was conducted by testing 272 survivor employees in a foreign bank in Hong Kong. Surprisingly the results showed no significant relationship between perceived job insecurity and affective organizational commitment; normative organizational commitment; OCB; and withdrawal cognitions. Yet perceived supervisors’ support and supervisors’ interactional justice could be strong reverse buffers.
