Abstract

Abstract In this study, it was aimed to determine the effect of staff empowerment on teachers’ three dimensioned organizational commitment. “Three Dimensioned Organizational Commitment Scale” and “School Personnel Empowerment Scale” were administered to 151 teachers who were randomly selected from primary schools in Gaziantep. Simple regression analyses results show that the total score of personnel empowerment significantly predict both the total score of organizational commitment and each dimensions of organizational commitment. According to the stepwise regression analyses results, “professional growth” and “impact” dimensions of personnel empowerment significantly predict both the total score of organizational commitment and the dimensions of “affective and normative commitment”. Also, “status” and “decision making” dimensions of personnel empowerment significantly predict the “continuance commitment” dimension. The findings show the importance of personnel empowerment strategies on teachers’ organizational commitment.
