Abstract:The present study investigated how employability of employees and employability policies of organizations (used education, stimulating internal mobility, satisfaction with employability policy) can prevent or reduce the negative consequences of job insecurity on the well-being of employees (burn-out, global health, absence rate). We also investigate if there is a direct influence of employability and employability policy on the well-being of employees. The data used in this study was gathered by the TNO work situation survey (TAS). The TAS is a survey conducted every two years into the work situation among the Dutch workforce. Survey data of 2002 (response 45%) and 2004 (response 46%) among employees with temporary and permanent contracts (N=7761) are used to test our hypotheses. The results suggest that job insecurity is related to poor well-being, while employability seems to improve the well-being of employees and reduces feelings of job insecurity. More internal mobility and educations used in organizations relates unexpectedly with a higher absence rate, but also with an increase of employability of employees. Furthermore, satisfaction with the employability policy seems to moderate the relationship between job insecurity and feelings of burn-out, and it also seems to reduce feelings of job insecurity among employees. However, satisfaction with the employability policy is unexpectedly negative related with employability
