Keywords: employee commitment; organizational commitment; professional commitment; deliberate commitment; part-time workers; generation cohorts

 

Summary: In our empirical research based upon 661 respondents we analyzed the factors of employee commitment in some of typical groups of employees. We examined the correlations among the organizational, professional and deliberate commitment factors in the groups of the career beginners of Generation Y, remotely employed teleworkers and the re-employed. In our study we took account of both forms of employment and the effects of generational differences as well. It can be demonstrated that, on the one hand, deliberate commitment has an organizational role and on the other hand, according to the nature of employment and characteristics of generation cohorts, the above employing organizations can create motivational systems for their employees.
