INTRODUCTION

PROBLEM STATEMENT

OBJECTIVES

To run organizations smoothly, effectively and efficiently, the most valuable and indispensable factor organizations need is human resource. Well-qualified and capable personnel are important in context of achieving goals and objectives of an organization. The success of an organization depends on the hard working, loyal and involved managers and employees. In this modern era where world has become a global village, firms are considered to be competitive on the basis of competence of their human resources. It is somewhat a difficult task to handle people who are physically, psychologically, culturally and ethnically different from each other. Attitude has direct impact on job satisfaction. Organizational commitment on the other hand, focuses on their attitudes towards the entire organization. Although a strong relationship between satisfaction and commitment has been found, more recent research gives more support to the idea that commitment causes satisfaction. However, most studies treat satisfaction and commitment differently, especially in light of things like downsizing that are part of modern organizations. Literature confirms a significant relationship of job satisfaction with organizational commitment, the study developed interest in exploring does job satisfaction commit bankers in Lahore. If yes, how much? The purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which employees of banking sector are satisfied with their jobs and committed to their banks are not. Also, it is intended to assess the relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment, as well as to examine the effect of employees' demographic factors on these 2 variables.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

a) Is there significant relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment? b) Do demographic factors such as age, education and grade level affect the job satisfaction and organizational commitment? c) Will there be difference in the commitment of bank personnel based on their years of experience? As this study selected the banking sector of Lahore, during the preliminary investigation it collected facts that turnover in banking sector has been at its peak during the recent decade. Low organization commitment among bankers of all cadres was reported as a complaint that all banks were facing. The present conditions of banking industry of Pakistan have not only snatched the serenity of the employees but have also affected their commitment with the organization. Employee turnover is one of the major results of structural transformations in banking sector of Pakistan. An essential way to cope with the problem of employee retention is to understand and analyze the level of organizational commitment of the employees and the factors influencing it. My research limitation is around the Province of Punjab under the District Lahore. Organizational commitment Organizational commitment is an attitude reflecting employees loyalty to their organization and is an ongoing process through which organizational participants express their concern for the organization and its continued success and well-being. Organizational commitment as a feeling of employees which force them to be the part of their organization and recognize the goals, values, norms and ethical standards of an organization. Organizational commitment has three dimensions: affective, continuance and normative commitment. Positive, sincere and utmost involvement of employee for its organization is called affective commitment. Continuance commitment can be seen when individual is committed with the organization because of some specific benefits like pension, insurance, medical and other fringe benefits. Employees Commitment with the organization because of the ethical standards or social norms is called normative commitment. Organizational commitment is the strongest motivator that highly affects persons intentions to perform well, increases his efficiency, and improves his skills. Organizational commitment is important for organizations because it is a good predictor of organizational goals and objectives, productivity, absenteeism and turnover. Job satisfaction The growth of interest of researchers in employee behavior and its outcomes has caused them to investigate different facets of job. Job satisfaction, one of the most researched variables in industrial/organizational psychology is one of the major factors that influence an employee experience at workplace. Job satisfaction can be defined in terms of an employees physical and emotional feeling. Job satisfaction is a topic which has derived attention of not only organizational employees but also of researchers. Job satisfaction is the emotional response of an individual toward his or her job or place of job coming out from his or her experience from the job. Job satisfaction is a pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of

One of the few serious consequences of leaving this organization would be scarcity of available alternatives. One of the major reasons I continue to work for this organization is that leaving would require considerable personal sacrifice-(another organization may not match the overall benefit I have here). I think people these days move from company to company too often. I do believe that a person must always be loyal to his/her organization. One of the major reasons I continue to work for this organization is that I believe that loyalty is important & therefore I feel a sense of moral obligation to remain. If I got another offer for a better job elsewhere I would not feel it was right to leave the organization. I was taught to believe in the value of remaining loyal to one organization. Things were better in the days when people stayed with one organization for most of their career life. All in all, I am satisfied with the members in my work group. All in all, I am satisfied with my immediate supervisor. All in all, I am satisfied with my job now. All in all, I am satisfied with this organization, compared to other company Considering my skills and level of education that I have, I am satisfied with my pay and benefit that I get in this organization. Most people in this organization are satisfied with the job that done now I never thought to leaving this organization even the condition of this company is not stable for this moment
