Abstract

The aim of the study was to examine and analyze the relationship on emotional intelligence with job insecurity and organizational commitment in organizations. Sample participants were 109 employees from various public and private sector organizations in Småland county, Sweden, with females representing 69.72% (N =76). Three instruments were used in the online study survey to collect data and these were Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQ), Job Insecurity Questionnaire and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. Results indicated that emotional intelligence and job insecurity were negatively correlated; emotional intelligence and organizational commitment were positively correlated; job insecurity and organizational commitment were negatively correlated. Emotional intelligence did not moderate the relationship between job insecurity and organizational commitment. Given the results, organizations may need to consider developing affective organizational commitment of employees and consider addressing job insecurity among employees in Sweden and promote emotional intelligence. Therefore, emotional intelligence may be worth the investment for employees in organizations in Sweden.

Keywords: Emotional intelligence, job insecurity, organizational commitment, affective commitment, downsizing, psychological contract.
