Previous research suggests that a greater degree of congruence between personal values and organisational values will enhance levels of employee commitment in organisations. The aim of the study was to determine whether organisational value and personal value congruence, operationalised as the correlation between organisational and individual values, can serve as a predictor of organisational commitment in an attempt to find ways of enhancing organisational commitment. A cross-sectional census approach was conducted on the entire population of a company (n = 120), which yielded 92 usable questionnaires. A factor analysis and internal consistency reliability analyses were initially conducted, followed by a regression analysis. The key findings of the study are: congruence between personal values and organisational values is not a statistically significant factor in predicting organisational commitment; personal values do predict organisational commitment individually; and organisational values do not correlate in a statistically significant manner with organisational commitment.
