  • Editor's Note

    Today the possibilities for a sociology journal are almost limitless. The first sociology journals reflected the needs of scholars of the time. But sociology, its place in the world, and the dissemination of information has changed utterly. So in starting afresh, what a new sociology journal should retain and what it should offer to the audience are important issues to consider. In this first edition, commemorating Ibadan Sociology at 50, we have decided to look back and see into the future. Read More

Psychosocial Predictors of Employee Job Insecurity and Turnover Intention in The Banking Industry Lagos, Nigeria


The study examined the psychosocial predictors of perceived job insecurity and turnover intention among bank employees. The study purposively selected eight banking organizations in Lagos, Nigeria and conveniently sampled 200 employees from these organizations. The ages of the employees ranged from 21 to 50 years with a mean of 30.21 years and standard deviation of 5.91. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data. Multiple Regression and Independent t-test were employed in testing the hypotheses.

The result revealed that self-monitoring and extraversion personality traits significantly mainly and jointly predicted turnover intention [R= 0.35; R2=0.12; F (2,199) =13.63, P<.05] accounting for 12% variance in turnover intention among bank employees. Extraversion independently predicted turnover intention [β= 0.35; t=5.11; P<.05] as well as job tenure [β 0.35; t=2.74; P<.05]. Age however did not independently predict turnover intention [β= -0.35; t= -1.32; P>.05].Self-monitoring and extraversion did not independently and jointly predict perceived job insecurity [R= 0.10; R2=0.01; F (2,199) =0.95, P>.05]. The predictor variables were only able to account for 1% variance on perceived job insecurity. Independently, self-monitoring [β= 0.08; t= 1.04; P>.05] and extroversion [β= 0.05; t= 0.70; P>.05] did not independently predict perceived job insecurity. Also, age, marital status, religion, education, job tenure and job status did not jointly and independently predict turnover intention. These result findings have implications for recruitment retention and training. It was therefore recommended to bank managers that personality should be used to complement situational factors during recruitment, retention and training programs.
