This study investigates employee’s perception of job security in relation to performance evaluations in the workplace. Job security can affect many facets of performance and attitude in the workplace. Not all organizations conduct performance evaluations, which can result in adverse outcomes for both them and their employees. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between performance evaluations and employee’s perception of job security. In addition, this study seeks to determine if there is a difference in receiving none, below average, average and above average evaluation feedback in terms of job security in performance evaluations being present or not. A one-way ANOVA was performed to evaluate the total score for job security and the performance rating the participants received. There was a significant difference between above average and average ratings (p=.04). Between the three groups (above average, average, and no performance rating) a significant difference was also found (p=.012). This indicates how important the evaluation process is while giving feedback to employees.
