Why is it important?

Our findings show that job insecurity negatively and significantly influenced employees' personal financial well-being whereas employees' personal financial well-being positively and significantly influenced work satisfaction directly and directly through employees' family financial well-being. Additionally, our study contributes to the well-being literature by expanding financial well-being to include personal and family aspects which are more pronounced in collectivistic societies.


Throughout the world, people are concerned with their financial well-being on personal and family levels. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and more and more people are unemployed, we hope to shed light on the relationships between job insecurity, personal financial well-being, family financial well-being, and work satisfaction. We trust that organizations and employees can work together to overcome the current crisis. Remember "tough times never last, tough people do".
