Abstract

This study investigated personal factors affecting organizational commitment among records management personnel in the state universities in Nigeria. Simple cluster sampling with equal allocation method was used to select 180 records management personnel from the study population. A five item organizational commitment scale developed by Ellemer , Gilder and Heuvel (1998) with (α = 0.79) reliability coefficient was used for data gathering. Six hypotheses were tested in the study. The Z-Score and X2 tests statistic, as well as simple correlation analysis were utilized. The results showed that sex, age, marital status, length of service, and level of education affect the organizational commitment of the subjects. The study advocated for improved conditions of service to enhance organizational commitment of the records management personnel in the state universities in Nigeria.
