Abstract
The purpose of this research is to gain an increased understanding of employees’ experienced uncertainty and their coping strategies in the face of downsizing. We discovered that employees in an uncertain situation develop and pursue varying coping strategies. This is caused by different perceptions of uncertainty, depending on the individual sense-making and multiple factors of influence. This thesis contributes to an in-depth understanding of people’s coping strategies during uncertain periods. Furthermore, it adds to the existing literature on the effects of downsizing. This study provides empirical evidence to support and challenge the EVLN model.
