Model of Organizational Commitment

In Chapter six I thought the model of organizational commitment was very interesting. The three components that John Meyer and Natalie Allan came up with are: affective commitment, normative commitment, and continuance commitment. They describe affective commitment as an emotional attachment to an organization. Under this commitment they continue to work for a company because they want to. They describe a normative commitment as a feeling of obligation. An employee with this characteristic may feel that they ought to remain working. The last organizational commitment is continuance in which the employee thinks about the costs associated with leaving a company. If you are working under continuance you remain working at the company because you feel you need to.
