Fauziah Noordin, Abdul Rahman Abdul Rahim, Abu Hassan Ibrahim, Mohd Shukri Omar

ABSTRACT
This paper reports a study of career-stage effects on organizational commitment among Australian managers. Organizational commitment was measured using the 24-item scale developed by Allen and Meyer. This scale measures affective, continuance, and normative organizational commitment. Career stage was operationalized on the basis of three criteria: age, organizational tenure, and positional tenure. The main aim of this study is to examine the relationship between career stage and organizational commitment and to determine the effects of career stage on organizational commitment of Australian managers. The findings support the expectation from previous research that organizational commitment increases with age. The findings indicate that increasing age strengthens calculative or continuance commitment.
