Behavioral Commitment, Identity Commitment, Organizational Commitment
This study focuses on gender differences on identity commitment and behavioral commitment of ten U.S. and Japanese transplants in Thailand. The study proceeds in two steps. First, the relationship between four categories of independent variables and two dimensions of organizational commitment, gender and other independent variables as well as the firms' home country and other independent variables are measured by bivariate analysis. Second, multivariate analyses are used to measure the general model and separate gender models respectively. The findings suggest that personal relationships with supervisor are the strongest indicator of two dimensions of organizational commitment for both males and females followed by cooperation and job satisfaction. In addition, job-related and structural-related variables are associated with females' identity commitment while work experience variables contribute to males' identity commitment. Males' behavioral commitment is influenced by work experience and personal characteristics variables whereas only work experience variables affect females' behavioral commitment.
