The study aimed to investigate the predicting effect of personal characteristics and status related factors on employee commitment to work. This was with a view to establishing the relevance of the individual personal attributes of employees in the accomplishment of the corporate goals in the manufacturing industry. A sample of four hundred and seventy two employees was randomly selected as participants from two manufacturing organisations in the same industry for the study. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Six factors (age, gender, marital status, educational background, organisational tenure and job status) were investigated. The results indicated that five of the factors could have predictive effect on employee commitment to work. However, employee commitment was not significantly affected by the factor of gender. The study concluded that socio-demographic variables were essential guides for achieving organisational productivity and for making judgment about an individual employee commitment to work in the manufacturing environment.
