Perceived organisational support and perceived supervisory support as predictors of organisational commitment of Malaysian academics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent years have seen a substantial expansion in academic research on organisational commitment, particularly focused on private sector. With the emerging challenges of privatisation of higher education, it is not obvious that these results also are applicable to academics. To explore this gap, this study analysed the role of perceived organisational support (POS) and perceived supervisory support (PSS) in developing academics’ commitment. Quantitative data from 220 academics across 6 universities in Malaysia is analysed using Pearson’s correlation. Results showed a partial relationship between POS, PSS and organisational commitment, suggesting that managerial support play a critical role in enhancing academics’ commitment. Implications of these findings are discussed.
