Authors : Yoshifumi Harada, Ndanusa Mohammed Manzuma-Ndaaba and Loh Chee Kiang

Abstract: This study aimed at determining the influences of perceived organization support and job satisfaction towards organizational commitment in a growing economy like Malaysia. Evidence was taken from Electrical and Electronic (E&E) organization in an industrial area KULIM, Malaysia. A total of 127 employees of Electrical and Electronic organization in KULIM responded to a well-structured questionnaire. After a thorough analysis of the data using version 19.0 of SPSS, the results showed that perceived organizational support and job satisfaction significantly influenced organizational commitment. This implies that organizational commitment is a critical success factor of an organization and is highly valued. Human resources are said to be the greatest asset of an organization, therefore commitment of internal customers of an organization should be seen as the organization’s competitive advantage. To sustain that competitive advantage organizations need to constantly develop and improve on the relationship with their employees.
