Experimental Analysis of Organizational Commitment within the Scope of Downsizing Threat and Empowerment Opportunity
AbstractThe main aim of this study is to analyze the impact of downsizing threat and empowerment opportunity on organizational commitment at the beginning of the implementation process. This aim is occurred because of an important lack of knowledge in related literature, which is only concentrate on during/after situations of downsizing and empowerment implementations. Based on the aim of the research, field experiment and survey methods were selected in order to collect data of study, and applied in two stages on the 126 subject in an international textile company. The results demonstrate that organizational commitment is increased at the beginning of both downsizing and empowerment processes. This finding is contains a significant distinction from the literature, which especially asserts a negative relation between downsizing and organizational commitment. Practical implications and directions for the future research are also discussed in this paper.
