Handbook of Employee Commitment

Edited by John P. Meyer

A high level of employee commitment holds particular value for organizations owing to its impact on organizational effectiveness and employee well-being. This Handbook provides an up-to-date review of theory and research pertaining to employee commitment in the workplace, outlining its value for both employers and employees and identifying key factors in its development, maintenance or decline. Including chapters from leading theorists and researchers from around the world, this Handbook presents cumulated and cutting-edge research exploring what commitment is, the different forms it can take, and how it is distinct from related concepts such as employee engagement, work motivation, embeddedness, the psychological contract, and organizational identification.

Chapter 35: Person-centered research strategies in commitment research

Alexandre J.S. Morin


This chapter provides a broad introduction to a person-centered perspective of commitment research more generally, and to the various possibilities provided by mixture models more specifically. Thus, after introducing the person-centered approach to commitment research, key elements of its implementation in research are addressed. A generalized structural equation modeling framework of broad relevance to all forms of person-centered analyses is then introduced, together with user-friendly descriptions of the various types of models that can be estimated using this framework (latent profile analyses, latent profile analyses with covariates, factor mixture analysis, similarity testing for profile solutions, latent transition analyses, mixture regression analyses, growth mixture analyses). For each model, a non-technical description of the model and of its implementation is provided, and followed by a brief illustration of the model through a short description of previously published applications
