Abstract

This study compares the difference between organizational commitment in a growing organisation and a downsized one. Specifically the research looks at the statistical difference in affective commitment, continuance commitment, and normative commitment between the two organisations. There is substantial literature that indicates that workers in companies which have downsized have less organisational commitment. The research also shows that organisational commitment is directly linked to job performance, absenteeism, citizenship behaviours and intentions of turnover.

There has been limited research done on organisational commitment in growing companies. Participants were gathered from two relevant companies based in Ireland, with shared similarities but a major difference was that one is growing and one has downsized. Research was gathered via online quantitative survey. A statistical difference was found to be in Affective Commitment. No significant difference was found in Normative and Continuance commitment.
