This qualitative, phenomenological research study, utilized a modified van Kaam method (Moustakas, 1994) to examine aerospace employee perceptions of outsourcing’s influence on their organizational loyalty. The data were collected using transcribed, semistructured interviews with 20 aerospace industry employees working in the Northern Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, and Southern New Jersey regions of the United States. The collected data were assessed with NVivo 7 software. The research question, how do you as an employee in the aerospace industry, perceive outsourcing’s influence on your organizational loyalty, determined that outsourcing negatively affects employee loyalty. The findings suggested that organizational initiatives to provide honest communication about outsourcing intentions, sincere efforts to provide alternative employment for affected employees, and employee’s adaptability to organizational change were found to have potential in mitigating the negative impact of outsourcing on organizational loyalty.
