Employee commitment continues to be an important issue for organizations. Even though prior studies link job satisfaction to organizational commitment, few have examined how job satisfaction together with organization context (formalization, organizational inflexibility, and satisfaction with organization structure) impact organization commitment. Using a sample of 504 professional accountants, regression results indicate that job satisfaction and organization context variables such as formalization, organizational inflexibility, and satisfaction with organization structure significantly impact organization commitment. Years in the accounting profession and growth needs strength are also significantly associated with organization commitment. Results provide insights on how firms can better manage organizational context variables to improve organization commitment.
