The study investigates the relationship between organizational commitment and turnover among management trainees. The study utilized a fifteen-month longitudinal design which was carried out from the first day of each of the trainees employment through the end of the first fifteen months of employment or until the time they left the organization. The results obtained indicated that the major change in commitment occurred during the last six months of the trainees employment in the organization. In addition, it was found that attitudes about job duties, unit effectiveness, and promotions had the strongest relationships with turnover while attitudes about geographical location and fellow workers had the weakest relationships with turnover.
