Three Component Model of Commitment


Definition: the Three Component Model of Commitment is a conceptualization of organizational commitment from employees. According to Meyer and Allen, Organizational Commitment is a psychological state (or a mindset) that describes the relationship of the employee with the organization, and reflects the desire or need to remain committed to the firm. This commitment has three components:
1) an affective attachment to the company,
2) the perceived "costs" (disadvantages) related to quitting the firm, and
3) an obligation to remain an employee at the organization.
