Abstract

rganizational commitment is an important topic having both practical and theoretical implications. The vast majority of studies in this area have looked at the commitment of employees and few studies have examined organizational commitment of volunteers. This study extends the prior research to a different sample undergraduate volunteers and investigates the relation of satisfaction and organizational commitment. This study aims to investigating the relationship between satisfaction and organizational commitment among undergraduate volunteers. A quantitative correlation research method was used to collect data. A self-administered questionnaire that comprised of a demographic, an adaptation of Job Descriptive Index (JDI) and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ) was administered to 350 samples from four universities in Peninsular Malaysia. They were proportionately and randomly selected in the study. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential analysis. The results revealed that overall satisfaction, leader/leadership, task, position opportunities and co-volunteers subscale were positively correlated to organizational commitment. The implications for undergraduate volunteers' managerial practices are discussed and put forward.
