Communication is the New Job Security
(Downloadable Version Only!)
In motivation studies over the decades, "job security" has always been on the list of motivators important to employees. Lawrence Lindhal's classic studies from the late 1940s of what workers want found "job security" ranked fourth in importance by employees of ten potential motivators at work.
More recent studies, such as The National Study of the Changing Workforce conducted by the Families and Work Institute in New York, found "job security" ranked eighth in importance of cited reasons considered very important in deciding to take a job with a current employer.
Although the same words--"job security"--were used in both of these studies some four decades apart, I'm convinced the words had very different meanings to employees in the past as compared to employees today.
