The aim of the study was to explore the factors within an international medical organisation that could be utilized to increase employee commitment. Two questionnaires were utilized as measuring instruments on a stratified random sample of employees at all levels within the organisation. The results show that the most influential organisation commitment driver factors or categories within the organisation were rewards and affiliation. When evaluating the perceptions of employees of the organisation's workplace commitment practices, it was evident that the organisation was not meeting its employees' expectations.
In general, the employees are moderately committed to their employer. A significant percentage (33 per cent) reported extreme levels of commitment, while a small percentage (12 per cent) reported low levels of commitment.
