Abstract [en]

Whereas job involvement and organizational commitment have attracted considerable research attention over the years, little is known about how these phenomena may be influenced by personality factors. This paper investigates the relationship between the Five Factor Model (FFM) of personality and employee attachment using a typology based on the individuals level of job involvement and organizational commitment. The results show that Emotional Stability, Extraversion and Conscientousness have a significant impact on individual classifications according to the attachment typology. Given the well established links between employee attachment and behavioral outcomes, these findings indicate that personality measures may be a highly valuable tool in personnel selection procedures.
