The finding showed that perceptions of job insecurity had negative effects on the engagement of employees. Also, employees’ job engagement can decrease turnover intent. The engagement of employees fully mediated the relationship between perceptions of job insecurity and turnover intent, and job insecurity caused by COVID-19 had a greater influence on employees belonging to smaller grades as compared to senior management in reducing job engagement, indicating that the negative impact of job insecurity is higher in junior grades.
