Abstract

Various researchers have analyzed the relationship of pay satisfaction and organizational commitment. However, little is known about the relationship of these constructs among the employees working various industries in Malaysia. The present study examined the level of pay satisfaction, career development opportunity and career development opportunity as well as the effect of the two earlier constructs on commitment of the workers towards their organization. The study utilizes a survey approach employing a set of standardized questionnaires consisting of the three areas that were being studied, the 14-item pay satisfaction questionnaire, the 4-item career development opportunity questionnaire and the 15- item organizational commitment questionnaire. The sample comprises of 109 respondents from 10 construction companies within Kuching Division in Sarawak. Data was analyzed using SPSS software ver 17.0, employing Pearson correlation and multiple regression. The results show that the level of pay satisfaction, career development and organizational commitment among the employees of construction companies are high. Correlation studies revealed that pay satisfaction and career development opportunity are positively correlated with organizational commitment. Multiple regressions show that the presence of pay satisfaction has rendered the relationship between career development opportunity and organizational commitment as less significant, which indicate the importance of money has superseded the desire for continuous development among these workers. Implication of the studies to the employers is for the improvement of certain areas within the pay raise and pay structure to improve the level of pay satisfaction among workers. The employers should also promote the career development opportunity within the organization which requires consistent attention to ensure employees in the construction set up can be committed to an organization for mutual benefits.
