Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify the impact of High Performance Work System (HPWS) on organizational commitment in a large state organization engaged in Electricity industry in Sri Lanka. This study used two main variables which were HPWS and organizational commitment. The hypotheses which were used for this study were: High performance work system is positively related to organizational commitment; and the percentage of variability of organizational commitment explained by high performance work system is significant. The data for the present study were collected from 50 respondents and all those respondents were executive level employees in the organization under the study. The standard instruments developed by Chuang and Liao and developed by Meyer, Allan and Smith were utilized to measure HPWS and organizational commitment respectively. The type of investigation of this study was correlational. The study was conducted in the natural environment and the researcher’s interference was minimal. This study was cross sectional rather than longitudinal. Results which were obtained after data analysis supported the acceptance of the two hypotheses. Based on the research findings, practical implications have also been discussed.
