The Effect of Employee Ambidexterity and Workaholism on Perceived Employability: An Empirical Study on the Private Banking Sector in Egypt

Amira Abd-El Aziz Mohamed Riad, Eglal Hafez, Eahab Elsaid


The purpose of this research study is to examine the relation between both employee ambidexterity and workaholism as independent variables and perceived employability as a dependent variable. In addition, the paper aims to test whether employee ambidexterity and workaholism can be considered as antecedents to perceived employability. Interviews were conducted with the employees in the private banking sector in Egypt to explore the relationship between the research variables. Common method bias techniques were adopted to avoid any errors and to reduce the bias. Three hundred survey questionnaires were distributed on a non-probalistic sample that was specifically selected for the study due to its sensitive nature. The results suggest that there is a positive direct relationship between the independent variables “employee ambidexterity” and “workaholism” and the dependent variable “perceived employability.” Both independent variables were found to be antecedents to the dependent variable. Future research should include employees in the public banking sector in Egypt and other sectors and regions in order to help generalize the findings. To the best of our knowledge, there are no previous studies that examine how these two independent variables (employee ambidexterity and workaholism) can help employees achieve better job opportunities and act as antecedents to the dependent variable (perceived employability).
