Abstract:

Relationships of several aspects of organization structure with organizational commitment were examined within a multiple correlation framework for 262 public sector employees. As a set, the six structural variables accounted for over 20 of the variation in organizational commitment for the vocationally heterogeneous sample studied. Decentralization, functional dependence, and formalization each made significant p .05, independent contributions to explained variation in organizational commitment. Overall, these results suggest that future model-building efforts should take organization structure into account as one potentially important dimension of influences on organizational commitment.
