The study was conducted on 200 private and public sector employees. Sample was drawn by using purposive sampling. The population belongs to an age group of 30 to 50 years. Only male population was considered in this paper in order to control the gender effect. Human Resource Development Scale developed by Shawkat and Ansari (1998) based on 12 dimensions and 40 items. Out of 40 items, only the items of 2 dimensions (viz; training and organizational change) were administered to measure affective commitment. Simultaneously, organizational commitment scale developed by Shah and Ansari (1998) consisted of 15 items and three dimensions was also administered. From 15 items only 5 items of one dimension were administered by the investigator to measure affective organizational commitment.
