Due to the global changes in trade and economy, firms need to adopt new technologies in their production processes. This brings unending organizational changes and cause resistance and increase the anxiety on losing jobs. Employees think that they can lose their jobs as newer equipment requires less labor. The present study aims to investigate the relationship between technology adoption and job insecurity in a textile manufacturing factory which has adopted a new production infrastructure in Kahramanmaraş.
In order to do so, initially a literature review is conducted and former studies are revised in terms of subject, context, methodology and findings. Later on a questionnaire is adopted from literature and applied to 96 participants (whole labor) from the factory. Statistical analyses are conducted via SPSS and AMOS and the results indicate that the labor of the factory are willing to use the new technology and perceive it useful, however they have the anxiety of losing their jobs. In conclusion some proposals for practitioners, researchers and policy makers are presented.

Ticaret ve ekonomideki küresel değişiklikler nedeniyle, firmaların üretim süreçlerinde yeni teknolojiler benimsemeleri gerekmektedir. Bu bitmeyen örgütsel değişiklikler, çalışanlarda dirençe sebep olmakta ve iş kaybetme endişesini arttırmaktadır. Çalışanlar, daha yeni ekipman daha az emek gerektirdiğinden işlerini kaybedebileceklerini düşünüyorlar. Bu çalışmada, Kahramanmaraş'ta yeni bir üretim altyapısı benimseyen, bir tekstil imalat fabrikasında teknoloji edinimi ile iş güvensizliği arasındaki ilişki araştırılmıştır.
Bunu yapabilmek için öncelikle bir literatür taraması yapılmış olup ve konu, bağlam, metodoloji ve bulgular açısından önceki çalışmalar incelenmiştir. Daha sonra yazından uyarlanan bir anket, fabrikadaki 96 katılımcıya (tüm işgücü) uygulanmıştır. İstatistiksel analizler, SPSS ve AMOS yardımıyla yapıldı. Sonuçlar, fabrika çalışanlarının, yeni teknolojiyi kullanmaya istekli olduklarını ve kullanımda faydalı olduğunu düşündüklerini belirtmektedir. Ancak çalışanların işlerini kaybetme endişesi vardır. Sonuç olarak, uygulayıcılar, araştırmacılar ve politikacılar için bazı öneriler sunulmaktadır.
