Abstract


The main purpose of the study was to find out the relationship between organizational culture and employee commitment and also to see whether commitment in organizations is a function of gender and employee age. The sampling was purposive. The data was collected from 152 executives employed in IT and ITes sector. The measures used were scales on Organizational commitment (Allen and Meyer 1990) and Organizational Culture (Koteshwara, Srinivasan and George, 2005). Result finding reveals the significant positive relationship between organizational commitment and culture. Out of the three types of commitment that is Normative, Affective and Continuance Commitment, affective commitment has emerged as the strong positive predictor of organization culture in IT and ITES sector in India. Results with respect to employees' demography show that organizational commitment varies with different age group of employees and there is no difference in male and female employees about the perception of organizational commitment. However the mean value of organizational commitment for male employees is higher than the female employees. The finding can be of high value for practicing managers. Managers can groom affective commitment among employees and can observe the rippling effect it creates in the organization. Diverse employee base will also help in establishing the culture or transferring the culture from one generation to the other. The paper is an original piece of research and has brought up the much contemporary issue of organizational commitment and culture.
