Abstract

This paper seeks to investigate the association between work values and organizational commitment in the Asian context. Two major dimensions of work values, that is, intrinsic and extrinsic, were derived from a factor analysis of Wollack et al.'s scale. Organizational commitment was defined in terms of an individual's degree of identification and involvement in the work organization. This variable was measured using Porter et al.'s scale. The analysis suggested that intrinsic work values relate more closely to organizational commitment than either the global measure of work values or extrinsic work values.
