Organizational Commitment Week 6 Project 2


Organizational Commitment

I believe Susie feel’s content as an employee of the Management team at Ace Enterprises. Her feelings and work can have a positive impact on the company as a whole. She is in Management. The company can grow as with her help. She feels satisfied. Her family is looking at her position from a different point of view. They can focus on relations among affective, continuance, and normative commitment with her and her company. Her organization needs her. She should ask her family to showdown her through out her day. They may v view her position differently. This can include relations between the three forms of commitment and variables identified as their antecedents, correlates, and consequences. Susie’s friends and family can have a negative affect on Susie’s work performance. Susie’s company is a very good company.

Three-Component Model consists of three forms of commitment. They are related yet distinguishable from one another as well as from job satisfaction, job involvement, and occupational commitment. Affective and continuance commitment generally correlated as expected with their hypothesized antecedent variables; no unique antecedents of normative commitment.

3 All three forms of commitment related negatively to withdrawal cognition and turnover, and affective commitment had the strongest and most favorable correlations with organization-relevant (attendance, performance, and organizational citizenship behavior) and employee-relevant (stress and work–family conflict) outcomes.

In closing, normative commitment is also associated with desirable outcomes, albeit not as strongly. Continuance commitment was unrelated or related negatively, to these outcomes. Comparisons of studies conducted within and outside North America revealed considerable similarity yet suggested that more systematic primary research concerning cultural differences is warranted.

Assignment 2: Organizational Commitment

Susie worked for Ace Enterprises for 12 years. She was always happy with her work and felt like she belonged at Ace Enterprises and didn’t want to leave. Many of her friends were her coworkers, and she played on the company softball team.

The management at Ace Enterprises helped Susie advance in her career. The organization provided her with training opportunities and stood by her when she needed to take time off to deal with personal problems.

Recently, Susie’s friends and family suggested that a person with her credentials would have plenty of job opportunities and that she should find a better paying, more interesting job elsewhere. However, Susie told them she preferred to stay at Ace Enterprises. Not only did she like her job and coworkers, but also felt that they gave her a lot in return for her work.

Affective commitment Continuance commitment Normative commitment What are your views of Susie’s commitment to her organization? Based on Susie’s experiences at Ace Enterprises, provide examples of each of the three components of organizational commitment.
