Hoang Thi Thanh Chung, Duong Thi Phuong Hanh

Organizational commitment is crucial to universities due to the critical role that employees play in the provision of high quality of human resource. In this study, authors investigated the relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment (affective commitment, normativem commitment, and continuance commitment) among academic employees in universities. The primary data was collected from academic staffs at universities in Ho Chi Minh City. Regression analysis results showed that job satisfaction had a positive effect on affective commitment, and continuance commitment among academic employees. These findings recommended that the government and university management should improve upon existing motivational strategies to ensure job satisfaction of academic employees in order to enhance their commitment. Actions of government and university authority that would lead to threats of job security among academic employees should be avoided as this could jeopardize their sense of commitment.
