Quick Reference

Refers to an individual's psychological attachment to an organization. It is often measured by three attitudinal factors: identification with the goals and values of the organization, a desire to belong to the organization, and willingness to display effort on behalf of the organization. For some commentators, an individual can only be considered truly committed to the organization when all three factors are in evidence. For others, one of these factors would constitute adequate evidence of commitment. [See dual commitment.]
