Commitment in the workplace has been an enduring concern of managers at all levels. On the basis of extensive research and practical work with corporations, Stephen L. Fink establishes a sound basis (Commitment Diagnostic Instrument) for diagnosing essential characteristics of employee commitment and, importantly, offers practical guidance for remedying situations in which commitment levels constitute problems. Fink examines the differing experiences of corporations with dissimilar personnel approaches. His analysis involves consideration of common, but highly relevant, factors including age, length of service, and educational level. Types of commitments are differentiated, for example, commitment to co-workers is distinguished from commitment to one's specific performance. Managers are guided on the approaches conducive to establish, monitor, and strengthen commitment as a means to a qualitatively better and more productive workplace.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is one of the more comprehensive looks at commitment in the workplace in recent years. Fink discusses several dimensions of commitment. For instance, organizational commitment can exist as a result of the work itself, and not necessarily because of the commitment to coworkers or the organization. Based on findings from his research, Fink outlines in detail what factors affect employee commitment and employee performance and pays careful attention to factors creating and reinforcing commitment. Information and data from the research is plentiful. Graduate and advanced undergraduate students would benefit most from this book, along with middle- and upper-level managers."-Choice

Steven Fink's blend of clinical experience, consultancy, and organizational research coupled with clarity of writing style makes this an exceptional contribution."-Patrick Canavan Vice President and Corporate Director of Human Resources Motorola, Inc.
