Abstract

Different religions have their distinct values and morals, Islam is a religion that teaches its followers with dignity, honesty, commitment, and faith in life. However, this study investigates the religiously affiliated employees and their job commitment concerning to their feeling of emotional attachment, norms, fear of the cost associated with either staying or leaving the workplace. After the structural equation modelling analysis of 428 employees from the health sector of Pakistan, all the forms of commitment; affective, normative, and continuance commitment were found to be affected by the religious affiliation of employees. Moreover, the normative commitment was found to be the most effective form of commitment amongst the religiously associated employees. This study found that religion and work are related to each other and cannot be separated or ignored, it will help the organizations with committed employees by implicating the work practices according to the behavioural aspect of the employees, including, religion.
