Career plateau has been an issue and challenge for most organizations in almost all sectors. Many researchers have connected career plateau with negative consequences such as lower degree of job satisfaction and organizational commitment which led to turnover intention. Therefore, this research explores the relationship between hierarchical plateau and the three components of organizational commitment, namely affective commitment, continuance commitment, and normative commitment. Data has been collected from 50 employees who worked more than five years in oil palm sectors. Questionnaire survey is applied to gather information and Pearson Correlation Coefficient is used to test the relationship between both variables. Result reveals that hierarchical plateau is significantly and negatively related to affective commitment and normative commitment, but positively related to continuance commitment. The research findings provided a new insight regarding career development as an influence factor which is able to influence employees‟ commitment. Plateau employees reported to have less emotional attachment and do not sense moral obligation towards organizations, but perceived employee benefits as a motivational factor to remain working. The implications, recommendations, and limitations of this study and direction for future research are also discussed based on the research findings.
