Abstract

This study examined the relationships between work values, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment of white-collar workers who are employed by foreign-invested companies in China. Results of structural equation modeling show that various facets of job satisfaction mediated the relationships between work values and organizational commitment. Employees' individualism and their willingness to take risks were related to various facets of job satisfaction. In turn, job satisfaction influenced their organizational commitment. The effects of various job satisfaction facets varied, with job autonomy satisfaction being a stronger predictor of organizational commitment than pay satisfaction. Theoretical and managerial implications are discussed.
