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. Examining topics such as high-commitment work systems, work attitudes and motivation, the Handbook provides integration with related literatures. Internationally applicable, sections also discuss the implications of culture differences for commitment and present the latest developments in research methods and analytic techniques that can be used to advance our understanding of commitment. Comprehensive and engaging, the Handbook of Employee Commitment is essential reading for commitment scholars and researchers interested in the latest developments in the field as well as for international scholars who will benefit from its guidance on how to approach research in unique cultures. It will also prove of prime interest to managers and management consultants with its wealth of suggestions to guide evidence-based practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Workplace commitment has commanded the attention of established researchers for many years. Young, emerging scholars throughout the world are also drawn to this important topic. This Handbook does what a handbook should: it offers the latest thinking on commitment, its fundamental nature, its antecedents, its consequences, its targets, its measurement, and yes, even its "dark sides". We learn too there are still many unanswered questions and controversies surrounding commitment. This volume provides the impetus to answer these questions and to advance our understanding of this captivating topic.' -- Paula C. Morrow, Iowa State University, US
`This book is the most comprehensive examination of employee commitment in Eastern as well as Western cultures on the market. Hence, it will be of utmost interest to behavioral scientists as well as practitioners who work with international organizations' -- Gary Latham, University of Toronto, Canada
`If you need a readable topographical map of commitment in organizations, this is the book. Thorough, clear, grounded in research, and multinational in its contributors, the Handbook is a valuable resource for scholars, students, and reflective practitioners. Reflecting both areas of agreement and divergence, the Handbook brings the reader up to speed on key issues for research and practice, and guides researchers toward important avenues for future study.' -- Denise M. Rousseau, Carnegie Mellon University, US
