organizational commitment

the extent to which an employee is committed to an ORGANIZATION. It has both attitudinal components (i.e. the degree to which individuals identify with the goals of the firm) and behavioural aspects (i.e. the likelihood of an employee leaving the firm), and as such has been criticized for being a muddled concept. There are a number of standard scales for measuring commitment, and they are commonly applied using SURVEY methods.
