Study on Affective Commitment Average Affective Commitment In an Organization |
Eachof these three components of employee commitment has been measured with thehelp of 2-4 statements and the response to each statement has been measured ona five point scale with strongly disagree on one end and strongly agree on theother. The score ranged from 1 to 5 with 3 as the median. The score of theemployee’s responses to each of the statements added and then divided by thenumber of statements to get the average dimensional score. The sum of all thesedimensional score provided the aggregate score, which divided by three gave usthe aggregate average score for a particular organization. If this aggregateaverage was more than three, the employees of the organization have acommitment that ranged towards ‘high level of commitment’ while if it was lessthan 3 then it tended towards the ‘low level’ of the continum. Thus, thecontinum ranged from ‘high’ on one end with a score of five and ‘low’ on theother end with a score of one. The aggregate average score of differentorganizations determined their position on this continum. The variousdimensions of employee commitment, the pattern formed in relation to each otherare studied next. High score on any dimension denote a positive aspect of thatdimension, while low scores denote a negative aspect.
