Thesis title and abstract:
The Effects of Perceived Organizational Support, Perceived Employee-Organization Value Congruence, and Work-Family Conflict on Organizational Commitment
     The increasing numbers of dual-worker couples has begun to impact organizations. Data were collected from a sample of 94 employees from four organizations. Results supported the hypotheses that there would be a positive relationship between (a) perceived organizationai support and organizational commitment, value congruence and organizational commitment, and value congruence and perceived organizational support and that there would be a negative relationship between (b) work-family conflict and organizational commitment, perceived organizational support, and value congruence. Work-family conflict was found to have a moderating effect on the relationship between perceived organizational support and organizational commitment. Structural modeling revealed both direct and indirect effects of work-family policies on work-family conflict, value congruence, perceived organizational support, and organizational commitment. Implications for further development of the social exchange model of commitment and further investigation of value congruency are discussed.
