It is therefore of crucial importance for managers of organisations to know what variables lead to or are antecedents of organisational commitment. Such knowledge would enable these managers to create conditions that are conducive to the development of such antecedents of organisational commitment in their organisations. This study investigated the role of job satisfaction and job involvement as such as antecedents of organisational commitment.
