The Relationship between Organizational Commitment, Intention to Remain and Attitude towards Absenteeism.
Rotter, Naomi G.; Mills, Miriam K.
In recent years, organizational analysts have examined the dynamics of organizational commitment both in production and service industries. These efforts have attempted to identify the antecedents and consequences of organizational commitment. The linkages between organizational commitment, employees' intention to remain, and attitudes towards absenteeism were examined among health professionals (N=368) at two hospitals. Work climate, quality of work life, and physician relations were most closely related to commitment and intention to remain. Burnout was the most potent concomitant of attitude towards absenteeism. The findings suggest that programs designed to reduce absenteeism should not be expected to have much impact on turnover since the two variables appear to be relatively independent. (Author/JAC)
