Today the rapid changes occur in technological, economic and political environments. In view of these changes most of the organizations implement some strategies such as acquisition, merger, outsourcing, reengineering, privitization, flexible working hours regulations and downsizing for gaining the competitive advantage or surviving. Although these strategies are applied for the benefits of the organization and employees, they may cause to some negative results. The most important one of these results is so many employees in the world and in our country lose their job or encounter with the job insecurity as a result of the implementation of these strategies. Till recently in Turkey the banking sector is known as the sector where the lay offs are common and the sensibility for economic crisis is high. So the employees in this sector have been assumed that the may feel the job insecurity intensively and this study was aimed to examine the job insecurity perceptions of the banking sector’s employees according to their demographic characteristics.
