ABSTRACT
This study of 321 American managers on international assignment in Pacific Rim or European countries assessed theoretically and empirically the extent to which various personal, job, organizational, and nonjob factors accounted for commitment to their parent companies and foreign operations. Regression analyses found both common and unique antecedent variables related to each target of organizational commitment; furthermore, discriminant analysis revealed patterns of dual and unilateral commitments based on specific job, organizational, and nonjob factors. The results reinforce the importance of nonjob factors to organizational commitment in international settings. Implications for research on commitment and human resource management are discussed.
