Abstract

Employee commitment is among quality indicators for human resource management. Previous studies on determinants of the commitment level have focused on individual’s personal characteristics (age, sex) and organizational circumstances (incentive scheme), ignoring factors related to environmental management. Meanwhile, adoption of environmental orientation in a company affects organizational culture and consequently, human resources. The paper presents the results of the study on the relationship between environmental orientation of a company, environmental knowledge, value of the environment and employee commitment. The main purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between these factors. Therefore, the results enrich findings of the previous studies on employee commitment with knowledge about other factors concerning environmental management. We assume that employee commitment has three multi-dimensional components namely: affective commitment, continuance commitment, and normative commitment. Questionnaires responses from 433 Polish workers were analyzed confirming the importance of environmental knowledge and awareness of the value of the environment as factors influencing both affective and normative commitment. But the results didn’t confirm the correlations with calculative commitment. From the point of view of pro-environmental orientation, it serves the role of moderator relative to the analyzed variables. The managers can use the findings as an argument to support implementation of environmental orientation.
