This paper questions the nature of organizational commitment in the light of contemporary competitive environments, the emergence of human resource management practices and reshaped employee-organization linkages. Qualitative research among organizational professionals suggests that the classical view of organizational commitment as a positive attitudinal state has been overtaken by a more complex view that embraces task-related goal congruence, energies directed at achieving outcomes and creative and innovative behaviours in the workplace. Stepwise regression analysis was used to examine the predictors of goal congruence, achievement and innovative behaviours in a sample of over 600 chemists and accountants.
