Organizational commitment in the companies of aviation industry: the attitude of managerial and non-managerial employees


The article discusses the challenges and factors influencing organizational commitment which has influence on the staff turnover in aviation organizations. The studies reveal that organizational commitment plays a huge role in a relationship between an individual and organization. If an employee’s organizational commitment is high, it is scientifically proven that his or her intention to change the organization is low. In the Lithuanian aviation sector, the impact of organizational commitment has not yet been assessed in any research. Also, the studies did not yet consider the different groups of aviation employees and the differences in their perceptions of organizational commitment. The aim of this article is to investigate the level of organizational commitment in the Lithuanian aviation sector among employees’ groups and to compare the results with the data from other surveys. The study reveals that organizational commitment is different between managerial and non-managerial staff. These results are useful for a broader analysis, which can be conducted in assessing the impact of organizational commitment between different groups of employees and to propose a model that reduces the difference in organizational commitment between different groups of employees. The observation of organizational commitment level can be made among different groups of employees.

Organizacinis įsipareigojimas aviacijos sektoriaus įmonėse: vadovaujančių ir nevadovaujančių darbuotojų požiūris


Straipsnyje aptariami organizacinio įsipareigojimo aviacijos sektoriuje iššūkiai ir veiksniai, kurie veikia aviacijos sektoriaus darbuotojų kaitą organizacijose. Mokslininkų atlikti tyrimai parodė, jog didelę svarbą individo bei organizacijos santykiams turi organizacinis įsipareigojimas. Jei darbuotojo organizacinis įsipareigojimas yra aukštas, įrodyta, jog jo siekis pakeisti organizaciją bus žemas. Lietuvos aviacijos sektoriuje darbuotojų organizacinis įsipareigojimas nebuvo tirtas. Be to, tyrimuose nebuvo atsižvelgta ir į skirtingas aviacijos darbuotojų grupes bei skirtumus tarp jų suvokiamo organizacinio įsipareigojimo. Šio straipsnio tikslas – atskleisti suvokiamo organizacinio įsipareigojimo skirtumus tarp vadovaujančių ir nevadovaujančių darbuotojų. Atlikus tyrimą, pastebėta, jog organizacinis įsipareigojimas tarp vadovaujančių ir nevadovaujančių darbuotojų skiriasi. Remiantis tyrimo rezultatais, buvo pasiūlytas suvokiamo organizacinio įsipareigojimo skirtumų aviacijos sektoriaus organizacijoje mažinimo modelis. Remiantis šiuo modeliu, galima stebėti organizacinio įsipareigojimo lygmenį tarp skirtingų darbuotojų grupių.

Reikšminiai žodžiai: organizacinis įsipareigojimas, organizacinė kultūra, aviacijos sektorius, organizacinio įsipareigojimo skirtumai, darbuotojų grupės.
