Interestingly, the neo-classical position is not usually associated with the argument that too great a sense of job security might also dampen efforts to find better jobs and progress within markets. This, we assume, is because of the primary focus on the freedom of managers to act in the literature. However, the existence of incentives for employees to change jobs could also be seen as a key feature of a vibrant labour market.
