Evaluation of Allen and Meyer’s Organizational Commitment Scale: A Cross-Cultural Application in Pakistan

Organizational Commitment comprises of three distinguishable components: Affective, Continuance and Normative Commitment. This study aims at evaluating Construct Validity (Convergent and Discriminant Validity) and Internal Reliability for Allen and Meyer’s Organizational Commitment Scale (1996) among the Banking Sector employees of Pakistan. This study is the first of its kind in a Pakistani setting. Eighteen items (6 for each of the three measures of Affective, Continuance and Normative Commitment) were used in the questionnaire. Two hundred and fifteen (215) valid responses from Major cities of Pakistan were analyzed for this study. The study revealed that the three measures (Affective, Continuance and Normative) were distinguishable from each other, on the basis of Construct Validity and Internal Reliability Analysis.  This validates that Allen and Meyer’s Organizational Commitment measures can be applied in Pakistani culture also.
