Regional unemployment and employee loyalty: evidence from 12 UK regions, IN Regional Studies, Vol 52 No 9 Sep 2018, pp1283-1293

Examines the relationship between unemployment and employee loyalty towards employers across UK regions, drawing on analysis of data from the national work and employment relations survey. Outlines the context for the study, describes earlier research on links between regional unemployment and employee loyalty and outlines the methodology used. Finds a positive association between levels of regional unemployment and employee loyalty, indicating that this relationship is stronger in the private sector. Discusses the regional policy implications of the findings and provides suggestions for future research.
