Impact of Job Involvement on Organizational Commitment: A Case Study of Lebanese Public Sector

Author: Wael Zaraket


While the topic of organizational commitment has been discussed thoroughly in various literature reviews, there are no references for such a study in Lebanon. After studying the existing literature review within the area of job involvement and organizational commitment, the researcher conducted a quantitative study where the data was distributed and collected from two hundred and thirty employees working in the Lebanese public sector using a self-administered questionnaire to explore the effects of job involvement on the level of organizational commitment. Five initial hypotheses were proposed to be tested through the research paper and three of these hypotheses were verified. The results show a significant relation between age and job involvement, whereas gender, salary, and educational level bear no relation to job involvement. Furthermore, job involvement bears a positive relation to the organizational commitment. The implications of the findings for practice were highlighted.


Keywords: Lebanon, public sector, job involvement, organizational commitment.
