What is Organizational Commitment?
Organizational Commitment - an employee’s desire to remain a member of an organization
-employees who are not committed to their organizations engage in withdrawal behaviour, defined as a
set of actions that employees perform to avoid the work situation
Three Forms of Commitment
Affective Commitment the reasons for an employee’s attachment is primarily desire-based. Employees
remain with their organization because they have an emotional bond; they want to stay.
Continuance Commitment the reasons for an employee’s attachment is primarily cost-based. Employees
remain with their organization because the costs associated with leaving are too high and/or suitable
alternatives do not exist; they have to stay.
Normative Commitment - the reasons for an employee’s attachment is primarily obligation-based.
Employees remain with their organization because they feel it is right thing to do; they ought to stay.
