Evaluation of Organizational Commitment Models and their components in Asian Cities

Anthony Wong, Canon Tong


Most studies in organizational commitment that conducted in Asian cities employed the three-component model of Meyer and Allen (1991). The five-component organizational commitment model of Wang (2004) had provided a better explanation of organization commitment behaviour in her research. In order to evaluate the appropriateness of Wang’s model, this research used her five-component model in studying the organizational commitment in Hong Kong. This research also provided an evaluation of its results with other relevant research in Asian cities in order to compare the organizational commitment behaviour in this area. Data was collected from 310 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) professionals in Hong Kong. Results indicate that Wang’s model is more appropriate than other western models in describing employees’ commitment in Hong Kong. By comparing the data collected in this research and recent findings from other researchers in Asian cities, the evaluation of these results indicates that the level of organizational commitment in Hong Kong is higher than those in other Asian cities.
